Fade to White


Fade to White

Daydreaming through memories I search for you
my journey takes me to waters of blue,
Your reflection shimmers, on the lake of my mind,
Unbroken by ripples, shed from the oars of time
Strong was our love, but in the end it was feigned,
Soon came a wind, pursued by the rain
just but a hint of your reflection remains,
washed away by the rains, and tides of distain
baptizing my memory of the trace of your face,
Just then, crashing thunder, and lightening a blaze
shining light on a memory, the day you left me in scorn,
confused, alone, and somewhat forlorn
All traces of you are fading to white,
these words I recite were not meant in spite,
I've been released from the grasp of your ghost on this night
No longer for the past will my heart mourn,
As I open my eyes, I wince at the light
A passion for love, in my heart now reborn,
with this new freedom, I smile in delight

I was delighted to read the reverie of love's past and new day, ahead. A very smooth waltz of hand-picked boquet of phrases: you have declared skillfully your heart's experience! Applause!

I love how you start with such sorrow, but end in a smile. Nicely done. There is truth here. The imagery of the storm was perfectly timed to the moments of life, "Just then, crashing thunder, and lightening a blaze//shining light on a memory, the day you left me in scorn" Perfect. Brilliant, my friend, I absolutely loved it.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
