Withering Petals

The spirit of cupid does stir
With both moon and sun, I sit so frail
My hope has worn down to the bone
I have no story left to tell

In my mind, love has lied
My Darling where are you now?
My heart, a dark shadowed forest
Haunted by aching images of you

These blue roses that lay upon my bed
Are weeping
Just like...
My exhausted thoughts.

Hello, Teddy,
Heartbreaking throughout, but your title and your last stanza are deeply pensive and sad. Well written poem, Teddy. Warm wishes to you.

You see I'm just practicing for valentine's Day, lol I had to dig deep for this, I'm so glad you were convinced.

Thank you...Teddy

Dear Teddy, your poem makes me want to cry, it's so heartbreaking. Such a lot of feeling comes through. As usual, you wear your heart on your sleeve...lol, not sure whether that's the correct expression. Remember I live in Argentina and hardly ever speak English to anybody, nowadays.
But I'll always be reading your poems, whilst I await my Muse.
Gracy

So good to see you gracing my page, this is my muse of lost love, I'm just practicing for valentine's Day lol, pain and love go perfectly. Your muse will appear when you least expect it, but feel free to write me PM's anytime, just to keep your English.

Thank you...Teddy

I think any living soul can relate to this message clear as spring water. It's what life is.

Bathe yourself with poetry and let the world go to pieces.

Thank you for these lovely words, I'm so happy when my writing brings emotions.

Thank you...Teddy
