Sonnet to You, My Love

Memories littered upon our bed.
Pictured Kodak moments on the wall.
Our photographs color all we said
Leaving pastel monuments recall
Of a bride, a groom, our song erased
By death's ashes scattered in our room.
Haunted desire, never effaced,
I outlive your world in dullest gloom.
My living memories spurn the wind
Racing, pacing and pasting a new
Haunting in my eyes:  I cannot find
The shadow left of love - I once knew.
Am I to desire - forever doomed
And damned by death - my lover's lost tune?

Sally - This is a very sad write. Life can be hard when one must survive the death of a loved one. It is one of the most difficult things we must endure. You certainly have captured that in this piece. Nice work again my friend. Ken

wheel, A profound verse which questions what the survivor feels after mourning starts to pass and life still has to be lived. Haunting and poignant. ginga

A brilliant sonnet form, strong lines coupled with perfect rhyme.



Thank you for reading.

This is indeed a touching & brilliant write, about the catastrophic sudden onset of unbearable visceral emptiness that occurs with the loss one's lifelong companion & soil mate. An excellent tribute to his passing.



Thank you. Sally

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
