A Forsaken Love Found at Last
Introduction and Summary
On the surface this is a poem about the tragedy of losing someone that you love. More deeply it deals with the mistake of looking for something else when you should be satisfied with what you already have. Too often people are so busy pursuing happiness that they don't realize that they already have many things to be happy about in their life. Unfortunately, most of the time people don't truly appreciate those things until they are gone and it's too late.
I hope that you enjoy the poem and feel very free to leave any feedback in the comments.
A Forsaken Love Found at Last - a poem by Kelly W. Patterson
beside a stricken field, while the sun
I stood by an open casket encased in stone
its inhabitant has finally cooled to my touch
as overhead a vicious night approaches
amid star-dust and vaporous lights up above
a thick gray shadow intrudes upon my thoughts
I came to the desert to quench my soul's thirst
perhaps it is then appropriate that it died here
my one true love lay upon her funeral
clutching a black rose, immobile like a statue
will you ever awaken? can you hear the rain?
a dark storm is approaching like an ocean tide
even though your fair heart has turned
the universe will keep your vibrations alive
many days I have grieved as you lay dying
now as I leave you I'm alone in my darkness
