Words do not do justice to you...

Are you still the same as you were
Each new day lost its charm
The sun lost his warmth
The moon lost her luster
The stars were extinguished
One by one as my tears fell on them
The birds ceased their songs
Morning and night
Became the same
Days became insignificant
Life lost its luster
ecame mere existence?
Are you still the mystical goddess
Who enchanted my spirit
My mind
My soul
With an aura of acumen
I’d never acknowledged in anyone else?
I am a rudderless ship
On an uncertain sea
Without your presence
Please pardon the clichés
I would settle for a telepathic thought
From you
Or a fragment of a dream
I shall not talk of love
Of your heart-stopping beauty
For these are for another time
Another realm

You are penning emotions with great delicacy here, Regis. Isn't it terrible to wake up one morning to notice that something has changed - suddenly gold has lost its shine. Is the change in us or the other person? You are raising wonderful questions in your deeply honest poem. Take care, Franz

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 10/3/2004
How DO you do this, Regis?! Even in the most disarming of apologetic, you are totally sincere, totally lucid and vulnerable. Totally brilliant diamond-write as usual that emites piercing rays straight into heart and mind - even whilst you express feelings of being, perhaps, "dulled by pain". Your poetry is never a blunt instrument... I am reminded that diamonds are in fact used in some way in the performing of heart surgery: can't figure quite how, but your words seem to have the same effect! Your stripped-bare-and-naked writes bring out the lover, mother, friend and sister in all us girls, for sure! Just melting, Regis, thank you. LOL Kate xx
