Dolour

and...

as the night-flower of anguish
opens and blooms
I wither and fade
into the shadows of loneliness
realizing that your scent
has all but evaporated...

    it's me, coming here (again) to review your poem.

    I like how you start this piece off. I think I read this style from you first of all, many years ago? I have used this myself many times since. They say flattery is one of the best compliments, don't they?

    The mention of any flower immediately infuses colour, shape and scent. The fact this flower is of the night; a flower that offers night scent immediately can bring to mind visit memories each and every time its fragrance is smelt. I like the opening of the flower, like the opening of a wound; bitter sweet overtime. The poem fades away unlike the person who is indelibly etched to this vision and scent.

    You are, to my mind, the most skilled poet with this form you have made your own.
