Was There (poem)

Updated on December 19, 2012

Was there the couple met to dance

And for this while their time to chance

To taste the fruits of pure romance

Surrender all for lovers’ trance


And all around the world was theirs

Flirtatious worries idle cares

Endless kisses enduring stares

So much ignited by their flares


Soon life was there to meet their dance

Invented worries made up cares

Unnoticed change amid their stares

Unknowingly lost to new trance


Then world of confusion was theirs

Just sorrow and tears would they chance

Left only heartbreak to romance

Their passions now arguments’ flares


But there in a sleep or a trance

They dreamt of a distant romance

Was there they had nothing to chance

Was there the couple met to dance

      A story in this poem that leaves us wondering about the conclusion. Was it a dream romance or did they mend ways and fall back in love again?

      Mhatter, another gem, flowing beautifully with passion, pain, loss and yearning. I haven't written a serious poem for sometime, but when I read yours, I feel the need to start again.

      Thank you Martin, A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to you.
