Forever for Always

The flavour of love plays cold
across my tongue
no sweetness now in dawn’s moist kiss
to lips of a dying rose.

Winter renders everything
immobile
Dormant.

The road to here filled
with blood, sweat, and tears
anger, pain and sorrow
Yet even then
(because of love)
I seek no retribution for it all.

In close proximity to Earths
sweet breath, I too, breathe now
within her harmonies
A silent witness looking in
on the emptiness of their
lost souls.

No, I seek no revenge for
tortures of the past even
unto the final closing of eyes
For the heart knows that
ancient truths do not lie
in causing yet more harm.

The task remains the same

Contemplate, absorb, sift
thank them for the pain
for, it’s that pain which teaches
us the lesson

then, move on

forever for always
Onward.

  1. I so relate to this poem……the pain that teaches us the lesson, the way life keeps us moving on even when we dont always want to…….very beautiful writing.

  2. The picture and the poem compliment each other so well that it seems like the poem should be transposed over the picture. I truly appreciate poetry like this that helps us see life as it is, but still keeps us moving forward.

  3. I love the taste of the first stanza. so many beautiful thoughts spun together throughout…absolutely lovely.

  4. Beautiful words, Daydreamer. Winter does render things immobile.. Those of us who live in those ‘winter’ climes need to find a way to overcome this. I appreciated your poem greatly.

  5. The flavour of love plays cold
    across my tongue
    no sweetness now in dawn’s moist kiss
    to lips of a dying rose.

    Just beautiful that is. Did you take the photo?

  6. Very true, we learn much more from the pain and being wrong then we ever do from happy and being right. But still that cat likes saying “I told you so”..hahaha

  7. So true, but sometimes hard to do (move on). I really like this:

    For the heart knows that
    ancient truths do not lie
    in causing yet more harm.
