"Out of a world of laughter,
suddenly I am sad.
Day and night, it haunts me,
the kiss I never had"
--Midsummer by Syndey King Russell

"Chances lost are hope's torn up pages"-- "Chances" by Five for Fighting


The dark figure looms ahead,
the night lives on while the sun is dead.
The dream he is I wish I knew,
my lament hanging with midnight dew.
Chilly autumn breezes freeze my heart still,
but my mind wanders, pondering Fate's will.
His cloak encases me full darkness.
This thrill of his suspense, I must confess,
filled me with "wonders never felt before".
I hear his deaf'ning silence, "nothing more".
My dreams of him fade with the misty tide,
my voice growing weak as he moves aside.
Taunting me with his warm breath on my skin,
his love is impossible to e'er win.
But with his smile, his humor, his charm,
how can they wrong me, do me any harm?
Each moment he is with me, he is mine,
I resolve that is where I draw the line.
I will never ask for anything more.
Just seeing him will be all I search for.
This dream I have will be all I find,
for the best romance lives inside your mind.

To my "Raven" who still sits above my bust of Pallas just above my chamber door. Perching, sitting, nothing more. We are nothing more than friends, says he. Why, WHY, WHY MUST THAT BE? We came so close not long ago, our love bonded by Edgar Allan Poe.

*sigh* I know, right? It's extremely bittersweet. There's a quote that accompanies it: "Out of a world of laughter, suddenly I am sad, Day and night it haunts me, the kiss I never had".

That's what really inspired me to write this poem. <3

If you could please rate and comment some of my other poems, I'd REALLY appreciate it! :)

Favorite Quote:
To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

This is incredible! The last line is very true...
