The Night's Sky

Updated on February 7, 2015


The scent of her perfume enveloped the pair,

as they danced,

soft music filled the air,

they were in a romantic trance,

their hearts were beating rhythmically,

close together with no distance,

not a chance,

love intensified,

he felt electrified,

and she was satisfied,

they were thrilled to be alive,

as he closed his eyes,

he felt her warm cheek

brush against his,

his knees felt weak,

and only her eyes would speak,

holding her close was pure delight,

as the night’s sky

illuminated the room through an overhead skylight,

it was a beautiful sight,

she had so much fun,

their two shadows melted into one,

their dancing continued,

and the love they were sharing,

was so caring,

then their kisses,

It was so daring,

that was quite a show,

but it all happened over fifty years ago,

they have a past,

the memories would last,

she was the love of his life,

his beautiful wife.

"911..."

"It’s my wife, She stopped breathing."

      Aw geeze Frank. You certainly had me with this one. I was reading along thinking, wow, Frank wrote a beautifully, romantic poem and BAMM, you sent that ending in to really grab us. I had to read it again to make sure.

      VERY well done.

      Voted up, awesome, beautiful, and interesting. We really need a thrilling or chilling button!

      Awww the beauty of love's sweet ardor carries us onward. I could see my precious parents here...

      feeling the love and the sorrow so vividly shared within these lines.

      Angels are on the way to you this morning (in the wee hours :D).

      Perfect! Resigning to your ending I can see the bereaved in your poem in the foreground of this bluehorizon. Glad to see this one pulled out of your stacks today.

      Glad I caught this Frank, don't think I have read any of your poetry. Again it could be true, that is how I read you, it always seems so real. Surprise ending, yes. Glad you didn't kill her, lol. ^

      I was feeling the dance and the relationship. I recall dancing that way one night in a bar with the love of my life. So this rang a romantic bell with me. Then....a cymbal shook the earth. You really know how to set the scene and set up the reader.

      This poem is awesome!! The ending is so unexpected but I think it's a very thoughtful and profound way to end. When you loose someone you love, the memories of your happiest times together are the most powerful - to the point that you can feel you are almost back there with them again, before reality brings all crashing back down again! Have bookmarked as a favourite - I loved this!

      Using the flashback as the bulk of the poem really made the ending so much more effective. Voted up and awesome.
