Loved One | Teen Ink

Loved One MAG

By Brian C., Abington, MA

     As far as the gypsy’s eye can see

As low as the clouds that touch the trees

The blades of grass, the dying leaves

Love consumes endlessly

Fluttering of the moth’s gentle wings

The woman in the woods that will never sing

A frozen pond in the middle of a dream

Love endures as it seems

Touching all with gentle limbs

Singing a melody of compelling hymns

Curing men that drip with sins

Our journey starts where love begins

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Wow. I love this. I'm so glad that this has been published. Congrats! You deserve it. I love this poem, a lot. It has a lot of depth, emotion, peace, love, and you. You put yourself into it, when you wrote your poem. It's just absolutely, amazing and beautiful and wonderful. You have such a talent and greatness in you; and I hope you know that. Thank you, thank you so much for sharing this.

I love it. I like to read and write sad poems so this was a nice change. It didnt stray too far from my usual but it gave me a taste of the "other side"

Time is an important thing but it is also the cause of a lot of pain;Some wish for it to go faster while others wish for it to go faster.Then there are those that wish it could just end. So enjoy the time in life you are given and don't worry so much.

totally loved this! keep writing! =)
