velvet mist




though her heart is gently weeping
her eyes do not shed a tear
for the love they shared in living
echoes whispers she can hear
softly soothing as a touch
of his fingers on her skin
while the velvet mist enshrouds
keeping their love locked within
dreams she dreams with open eyes
where their souls can reunite
in a land beyond forever
under sparkling starry night

  1. Really romantic and well written congrats shadow. You are getting closer and closer to my favourite romantic singer lyrics, chet baker:


    like this one called "The thrill is gone"

    the thrill is gone
    the thrill is gone
    i can see it in your eyes
    i can hear it in your sighs
    feel your touch and realize
    the thrill is gone

    the nights are cold
    for love is old
    love was grand when love was knew
    birds were singing, skys were blue
    now it don't appeal to you
    the thrill is gone

    this is the end
    so why pritend
    and let it linger on
    the thrill is gone

  5. You have such a evocative style that says so much with hints rather than a billy club. Nicely written.

  19. Reunited love is what we all wish for, it is romantic and sweet. Even in death we can find someone through our memories and photos we carry in our heart. I like how this poem brings in the added sense of remembered touch.

  20. Beautiful. I remember having seen a farewell scene in a movie, where the hero said to his lover "I see you when we are two golden clouds in the sky". Unforgettable.

  24. You always stun me with not only your poetry, but your picture selection. Wish I could see what's reflecting in the mirror she holds... wonder what angle the photographer or artist was working there...
