Flickering flame of haunting memories;

A candle burns on memory’s altar.

Deeply engrossed in sublime reveries

My life-force within begins to falter,

 

As I muse about a long lost gentle kiss,

Her velvety skin, the silk of her hair,

And the uplifting, soul-inspiring bliss

Of words of love expressed in soft whisper.

 

Another year’s gone; there is still no peace,

The turmoil, heartache does not wish to wane,

From haunting memories there’s no release,

All efforts to heal seem to be in vain.

 

Nothing can repair what was once a whole…

Cheerless emptiness cries inside my soul.

This sonnet is an homage to pain and pain seems to be part and parcel of life on this planet. Love and peace to you, Peter.

Oh Peter, you write through your pained heart with words that tear drop off the page...

Be always safe,

Peter,

Undone by the pain in these words - never gets easier, does it? Well penned.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 8/15/2009
THIS was a truly wonderful sonnet. The pain bled through the words and soaked me. If I only had a beer in front of me. Not making light this great poetry, just saying . . .
