Star-Crossed

Starry-Night-Wallpaper-1920x1080

Skies split raw atoms
Estranged us, irreparably
Our too-young hearts, blasted
War-torn, Fate’s odd fires flaring
Taking us down, in rain-soaked nights
Our flights of fancy, then of loss
All disappearing over years, tears spent
Now that you’ve gone, who knows?
As if dreams carry on, your voice
Echoes in a room, an old tune plays
Reminding me of oceans green, across
I see you standing on Time’s shores, knowing
You might have tried to stay, to say
This isn’t goodbye…
As waters under bridges flow
Something deep down says to trust
That like a tree bending in rough wind
I’ll feel your laughter again

  1. Wowwww…that’s all I’ve got. 🙂

  2. Beautiful, riveting, passionate arpeggio of love. Even at the crossroads we all must go away… but, somehow, I know he is still saying… this is not goodbye.

  3. What a beautiful ache in this! Thank you!

  4. Absolutely beautiful and full of pathos. Left me a bit shaken at the last verse. Great work, Susan!
