Ebony darkness
weaves her own melodies
into the silent sky.

Beautiful memories
light up the darkness,
each one exploding, like a firework -
each one, duly expiring.

Then those final colours fade,
as the display draws to a close -

leaving me wondering,
in the empty aftermath
of calm skies:
Wasn't it all just an
exquisite illusion?
Is anything real?

    Yes, some things are real - they just don't last unfortunately. That's life, thats why this poem is so relatable. Well written Paula~ (Report) Reply

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
