Thank goodness this is a poem from my attic of verse. I almost lost my way back then but life has a way of keeping the rhythms together to best suit us. My heart rejoices at that decision. ~SKdV~

In the diminished power of illusion
As tears lasso a dream
Facets fade as the shade draws
Upon embroidered gloss she screams
In quiet sobs she remorses
What was then, is now... and gone
She holds the smile he gave her
Then pain strikes to her bones
Regret of what had happened
In this crossroad of pure pain
When he came out of nowhere
Then for a time echoed her name
It just wasn't meant to happen
As farrowed dreams paint fault
They bow to her fast sorrow
As her tears turn into salt
This world can be so beautiful
As dawn begins each day
But love can paint a canvas
Turn sunshine into grays
They take another pathway
Never knowing what is gone
To live a life without true love
Then go their way alone.

Dear Susan,
Great title to a deep heartfelt poem that strikes the heart!
Deeply moving; as we move together and alone .. all one in our aloneness, learning immensely as we go.
Thank you for sharing your loving heart that unites.
Love, Suzie xoxx :-D

The ending made me gulp!!!
So sad, and so well written, art comes of pain sometimes, ain't it a bytch!

these lines hit home

As farrowed dreams paint fault
They bow to her fast sorrow
As her tears turn into salt

ahhh agony!!!

but beautiful expression as always..........

What you wrote on my last poem was so true.............
I am very quiet, but when I write, I can roar lol
or atleast try.

I am on my way to your daughters site,.

Hard poem to write because of the turmoil that produced it, but it reads like a forewarning to us all, that love can bend and hurt us, but never break.

These words show your mastery of taking illusion and its many facets to the heights of beatuy, and to the lows of sorrow.
Well done in every line. - Bill

Seems we were both looking back into our immortal pasts today but yours seems to have had a happier ending. Soon time for another little chat about this old friend.

Some things are just not meant to be in this beautiful world..
We all have a role and part to play on the stage of life, whether thats minor or major depends on the card stacker !
