Musings Of You

by N J Thornton   Jan 15, 2006

The moon appeared whole that night
At rest, deep within your eyes
Unsure am I of the heavens now

'Though musings of you stay

Our lips became acquainted once
Fervour was in abundance
The season's phase unrecalled

'Though musings of you stay

Honeybee tended to timid rose
I, in your snug embrace
Winter winds almost forgotten

'Though musings of you stay

Joyous faces on a frozen lake
Turn sour with pencilled lines
Nor are you, my love, faultless

'Though musings of you stay

*I wrote this for my fiance. This poem represents the fact that times come and go, and things are forgotten, but our love will never fade. Also, no one or thing is perfect, but differences can make love stronger.
**Additional author notes: This poem purposely has no strict syllable count to emphasis the fact neither love nor life follow a strict sequence. Also, please keep in mind I use the Queen's English. Thanks.

    Wow this is very different but it was also very well penned, not just another cliche love poem. I wish I could write like this, with such beautiful sophisticated words and style. Keep up your lovely work, and thanks for your comment!
