Forgot to erase…..

The saline pearls that I forgot to erase………

Bleached out are all my witless vanities in a blink;

Repose, I wordlessly in the moth-eaten coffin and think.

Echoing her name from the elite memories, I have;

Pine I, the balmy touch and warmth of aroha she gave.

 

Oh asterisks! Bedim your glint, for eyes gestates my soulful moon;

Hither descends the angel of mine, aah…my life’s paragon boon.

Autumns she, as the maiden ray of sun and departs as the last rain;

Bequeathing my desolate heart unquenchable, all panting in pain.

 

Robs she, the bereft and sterile soil from my rusted grave;

Aflame in the acerbic quagmire of aloneness, and aggrieve.

Spited she, kneels in orisons and hollow handed, walks off;

Finding operose, the bracing stores of intimacy, to throw off.

 

Oh God, stream your grace, afford me a lone breath of life;

Know you not, knots of love are insubordinate to Death’s knife?

Engrossed in the absolute foolery of winning life’s bootless race;

Treasured salty pelts on her sugared cheeks, I forgot to erase.

    The imagery translates beautifully into persian.
    I enjoyed reliving the poem a second time in Rumi’s tongue!

  3. Reva, this is beautifully poignant. It reminds me well why I dread certain phone calls…”desolate heart unquenchable”.

    Wow, Reva. I have to read over this one again and dissect it, maybe two or three times. It rings as very deep and sad. Poetry definitely touches to the core of the emotions.

    All emotions you display in this poem,
    Love, betray, pleading and bleeding through the page.
    Chasing away the bad omen.
    Rip, fight and be free from the cage.
    PS. Mighty emotions you stirred in your poem. Well done.

  9. Wow! I’ll be honest – I love sad poetry, I really do and that’s why most of my poems are the same – hopefulness comes to me but very rarely.

    “Oh asterisks! Bedim your glint, for eyes gestates my soulful moon;
    Hither descends the angel of mine, aah…my life’s paragon boon.”

    Whoa! Splendid, and you vocabulary is just…what can I say, I don’t have the words – it’s unbelievably good, I always have to google a few because mine is..hehe let’s just say limited. 😀
    Great work, R! Beautiful! ❤

      Big warm hug to you for liking and loving my sad poem D!. For the first time, even I loved it immensely after posting. I had to get into the character and I did…. It was really painful. I love poems of hope but to experience that hope, I have to walk on the grimmest path of brokenness. You see no hope without loss.

      Now stop upgrading my thing and degrading your thing. We are full to PhDs in our own domains. That is why we are connected. 🙂

      Honestly, whoever has liked or loved this poem so far,,,,my bond with them has grown lil stronger now. Because, good or bad, I am in love with this poem of mine.

      Love you darling! Stay shining. 🙂
