Bittersweet...



Too beautiful it was
like a dream
that never ends
in my eyes
you are

Too beautiful we were
burning in the steam
our love sheds
in silent sighs
Too close yet this far
you are

Too beautiful to last
this future that is the now
and the past
gray is our broadcast
too much fog
verses in a blog
frozen tears
swallowed fears
savage cries
unanswered whys
Lines of guilt
initials on the side of a woven quilt
trembling warmth
as winter comes
finally
when i once thought
all the seasons are here
only when you are

like a star
you smile to me
haunting my ecstasy
with your absence
painting my existence
with these unspoken words
you never said
these open arms hugs
you never spread
wearing on that lifetime moment
we never actually spent
around my heart
whispering in my nape
breathing your escape
upon my skin

dressed in your words
stripping off all boards
my melancholy
That all i have for now
is just a sweet memory
that is too beautiful
to pass by
without being slayed
in its bittersweet
pain.

Deep poem. "Lines of guilt / initials on the side of a woven quilt..." adds another dimension and provides and interesting visual. Glad you took part today, Abeer, prompts such as this seem like a great starting point for your creative, heartfelt lines :)

I have those kind of sweet memories, I will never let them go and always hold on to hope.

A most beautifully profound poem.

Oh, Desert Rose. This cuts deep. This section

"when i once thought
all the seasons are here
only when you are"

stopped me in my tracks. I know just the feeling you mean. And the last few lines, well, they're difficult to read for their raw and devastating pain. It does, you know, feel just like that. But of course you know...your entire poem says so.

Btw, thanks as always for your lovely comment about mine. I'm glad if it made you feel a little lighter! :-)

"..haunting my ecstasy
with your absence..."so many powerful images and analogies in this. The whole poem is almost too beautiful, too full of emotion expressed without bitterness, to be true...lovely work.

Maureen said...

The sense behind "in my eyes/ you are" echoes throughout this poem. You convey well the bittersweetness of loving and also losing.

You caught something about the photo -- the fact that this wasn't eternal but something less. I tried to deal with that by using mathematics as a kind of filter. I like how you handled this. Well done.

Lovely. "whispering in my nape
breathing your escape
upon my skin." I love that. I feel that.
