Forever I roam in the realm of night

Never again to behold the bright light

I walk alone and wander much too far

Searching in vain for my evening star


For I last left him in long days of old

Where love from fire was kindled strong and bold

But mine wavered and I was torn apart

By power of fate, hate, or some dark art


He was my whole life, but this he knew not

My heart could not be bought, so I thought

Yet he did so with a laugh and a smile

For him I knew I would walk miles and miles


I let fall my iron wall of defense

Though I knew not he had come to me whence

Now very dearly do the price I pay

For my futile fantasy dreams of day


 He is always, forever gone from me

Yet he still holds my broken, heart-shaped key

I walk, looking for him forevermore

Still searching blindly, within, for the door

    Was it personal experience you were writing from ????Whatever it is its truly heart warming,,i could well relate to the poem for i too had dealt with a similar situation earlier !I really like your style ,the use of some wonderful phrases coherently coupled with the sing song rhyme scheme of the poem made me delve deeper into the the poem's feelings and the emotions which echo through its words!Sad in the end but i guess that is what life is all about ,someone is always sad in the end!
