    Life that never was

    I see you an old woman

    I hear your trembling voice

    A faint, illusive vision,

    A life that never was.

     

    I turn your palm toward me

    The lines that run across

    Do tell a tender story,

    A life that never was.

     

    So much that I desired

    Has never felt so close,

    We met, we wed, retired,

    A life that never was.

    "We met, we wed, retired,/ A life that never was," Regret was never so well expressed as this, My rating for perfect versification, pathos and diction is a full 10.

    This is very powerful. I like the idea and find it very strong. Is this a woman who you loved and lost?..becos this is what I get from this writing. I love the flow. It runs smoothly I like the fact you do not elaborate on who the woman is becos of course she doesn't exists. Veryy good.

    Thanks Gracey!

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
