A Farewell to Love
A Farewell to Love


T'was in a nightmare’s tale where horrors dwell,
there rose a perfect love with caring sigh,
which lighted deepest depths of darkest hell,
inspiring passion on which dreams rely.
Have ere the words of life been writ so sweet,
to be enshrined in pleasure’s grasp to feel?
To touch a willing heart midst every beat,
it seemed each moment lived became more real.
But rainbows ceased and dried the wishing wells –
this story’s end would bring such grief to bear...
because the death this final chapter tells
relates a pain so difficult to share.
My eyes preserved each treasured tear t'was cried –
when passion wept as love laid down and died.

...just checking to see if I had missed any of your beautiful poems.  Every time I read I collect new thoughts...that's what great poetry does.  It helps us relate to our present state or perhaps serves to dig up memories on the borderline of forgotten.  the stand-out line for me today is...But rainbows ceased and dried the wishing wells---wonderfully sad.

There are a lot of good things in this poem. The main message is dramatic. Many of the lines are brilliant. It does suffer from a lack of poetic flow, due to too many words tossed in to make it seem even more dramatic.

Mixing Olde English and modern English always diminishes the message. You should go one way or the other, but not try to throw in a couple of Olde English words to make the write appear to be steeped in history. You have a lot of potential, Triston. You just need to clean up your style...len

I too hope this is not pain you are presently dealing with, Tristan. You write with such moving emotion and expression, and your form is perfect as always. What a heart-wrenching loss you depict here. To share alove that protects you from the horror of the world and then to lose it, what could be worse?

 love your sonnets...this one is no exception...always impeccable in the iambic pentameter.

but ooh...this one stings like a bee.  the conclusion pulls at my heart, especially the last line. 

this is one that makes one say...dang! wish I'd written that.  but then one would have to own the pain along with it.  hope you and your love are on solid ground. ♥  always your friend...and fan of your beautiful sonnets, shee
