A fictional poem about music, love, and the ending of both.


Across the pages, leaf by leaf
I quickly learn time is a thief
With every passing word and line
Hope fades from this dear heart of mine
Each chapter leads me to the end
Where no trace is found of you, friend
Sadness then forms; emptiness looms
Within these walls; these hollow rooms.
Across the pages, note for note
I quickly hear the song you wrote
An aria of loss and stress
Written by a soul in duress
The chorus reminds me of you
So melancholy and so blue
Yet, as I listen, I must weep
For the memories I’ll always keep.
Across the pages, verse by verse
I quickly read and then rehearse
The stanzas of a faded love
Never blessed by the stars above
The images in each remark
Embrace a heart, now cold and dark
Proving our lives were not to be
Lived in romantic harmony.

A beautiful and poignant write Jill...

I agree with Ron, Jill; this is said in a voice for many who can identify with this piece as most of us can. We all think we have found "the one" but it rpoves to be a disaster, and we go our seperate ways. Well penned, and thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you too, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

When the words reflect the heart they reach across the pages and across time.
This truly reflects the ebb and tide of life.
Hold on.

Very well said and part of the phases we go through. Grief changes us, sometimes in positive ways. Peace. Eileen

Did I ever tell you that it is ALWAYS a pleasure to read your poems, Jill? You truly understand poetic expression and your works are Art. Love this one, as if you could not tell :-)
