dusk arising

what remains



What need in me for more kisses?  
I'm no place for love to flame,   
Just an empty track
which once led someplace.
A broken link in a rusted chain. 

Though years were filled with pleasure
Time and time again.
Those ups and downs
upon loves merry go round,
never to be regained.

In my own minds eye I recall so well
living that loving game.
Each leading role
I'd rehearsed so well
received questionable acclaim.    

                  led tempted through insanity,   
                  and punished by the rain,   
                  tamed by ambiguity,
                  no more a pretty picture,
                  just another empty frame.   

So what spirit fills this vessel now?
What keeps this captor sane?
As I look to tomorrow
through a glass ever darkening.
Simply love,   love remains.

    Wonderful words d a. In spite of the many troubles we may have had love is always there, including love for music as shown in this piece by Debussy.

    I have several interpretations of music played on harp including Bach's Goldberg Variations played by Catrin Finch which I think is wonderful.

    A fine write dusk.
    My singing always remains, even if all else is lost. Arrgghhh, they say, and run away from me lol.

    Great words dusk, don't know how you do it, let's hope for all our sakes that the glass remains clear for a long time, and that love continues to blossom.


    Good Evening DA - Angela Here - We love Debussy and the flow in the music is well suited to the harp. Thanks for a very poignant Love Poem. Interesting rhyme pattern xaxxa in each verse - great to recite. Brian & I are in the first enjoyments of married love - but we are encouraged by your final verse. It reminds us that when all else has run its course - Love Remains !

    Love - Peace - Joy
    Angela & Brian 💛💛💛
