Bending the holy
and reflects upon antique eyes

Mishandled memories
Absorb the hours

Regret marinates the feast
Breaking the soured fast
To refuse

Petrified ruins of youth
Ignorance wafts through the dance
Of regret

Lissom lovers
Listless fates

One more taste where
Skin slides against skin

Moon goes down and my demons swolllow

Knarled hands hold tight
The silken wood

the curve of hip
black wisps
feathered against a once strong chest

minds asunder with
futures fortunes
naïve indictment certain

dusk descends
upon the lonesome rider
sleep requites a tender mercy

shallow moon
blesses the night
sweet lullaby
fates goodnight

You can feel it as the poem goes on, the young couple regretting their decision after giving into the passion that brough them together in the first place. It was too powerful to refuse but left them with a bitter taste in their mouths...I myself have been there, filled with regret afterward, wondering what mistake i had just made. Good write and use of language.

Keep Writing,

"Quoth said the Raven, NEVERMORE"

This is antiquity
Drawings of the years
Pictures of memories.
Only the stillness of the night
Is broken by the screams
Of lost youth

Yet they are muffled
By an instinct of normality
That is shrouded in lies
Untruths that coat the tongue
Saying that things will be done
yet wishing for more

Take your dreams
Make them real
All time is short
You cannot tell
Who rings that bell
Or who it is for.

Loved the write yet worry that you are not where you should be in the scheme of things, I have spent half of this long life in two parts, one holding onto reality the other half holding on to dreams..
If only the dreams were a reality then maybe I would not be so helpful lol.
One day maybe someone will say to you "I knew Yenti" just ask them to tell you of me lol..
Look forward to your future writes just forgive me for being in a poetic reply mood it is one of my ways of saying things to many,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I am ever amazed at your insight
clothed understanding
of the subtle intimacies
thank you for your
intelligent concepts of
