I watched him walk away
Thought he might return
But the sun sank
And stars told me it was done

They didn't mind
Having to keep me company
Listening to me rave on
Such lunacy

A grown woman
Whispering to the universe
Confiding in it
Like some old friend

Once though, that's just what we were
Whispered dreams and wishes
Youthful eyes
Oh to capture that innocence once more

Instead I pollute your oasis
Bleeding my poisoned love into your waters
Condemning night
To loneliness

Forgetting your inspiration
The drive to seek something more than myself
Falling away from hopes that sustain me
Like a dove with no wings

I watched him walk away
Never to return
Sacrificed, so once again
I may find my place among the stars

    Wow! I'm speechless. This poem is so beautiful! I absolutely love it! And you definitely deserve the win! Congratulations! I love this poem... It reminded me of the part in New Moon (have you seen it?) when Edward leaves Bella in the forest and she waits there for days because she waits for him to come back but he doesn't.. and eventually the police find her. You've expressed such a hurtful moment so beautifully... It was sweet and sad at the same time.
    Wonderful poem! It's poets like you that continue to inspire me to write!
    Excellent write! My current favorite =)

    Picture painting imagery! This is a different style than I am used to seeing from you,nice to see the variety. Beautifully penned.

    That is a wierd comment Mouris.the although makes it sound like being unique is a bad thing. And what syllable count are you talking about? This isn't a form and her syllable count doesn't effect the flow........
