Wilted Love


Poem Commentary

This was inspired by my own experience and also the daily poetry challenge on the boards! Thanks for the great inspiration!

Wilted Love

My love, alas our love has wilted.

The violin is playing a sad song

If only I didn't feel so jilted

Today we could be going strong.

The petals they have fallen

Upon the open ground

This pain it has befallen

And I'm afraid it can not be found.

One too many times
This hurt I have endured

It feels like I have committed many crimes

This feeling can not be cured.

If only I could show you

The bruises on my heart

You'd know that what I said was true

And give me a fresh start.

But until that day shall come

The petals they remain

And slowly I succumb

For never have I felt such pain.

Poetically rich. I love the passion in which you convey your loss. You manage to keep a level of interest. Great job Alexia!



Thank you as always your comments are too kind. I appreciate them all.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
