Treasure Island

Hazel Durham


Empty Space


Magic happens when were together,
Like wind and rain on our windowpane,
The sound of our sweet love,
Coming from the mystery of the skies above,
Stormy seas rage against our past troubles,
Then sunshine makes our dreams double,
Its rays highlighting our zest, as a middle aged couple,
Walking on a winding road, having our own secret code,
We dance when thunder and lightning strikes our abode.
Falling in love is like an endless, sparkling waterfall,
With hidden gems,
Glistening in our desires that have ears to listen,
To our heartbeats and lifes defeats,
Wandering around our sometimes desert souls.
We are afraid of the lonliness of growing old,
Leaving our loved one behind,
Like a cloud without rain,
Like the sun without light,
Like day without night,
Like a mountain without any height,
Like a magician with a vanishing dove,
That never returns,
All thats left will be an empty space,
That will be filled with love,
Like water in a timeless, tranquil lake,
Heartbeats connecting eternally,
In the elements of nature's last take,
That will sing its haunting song for our hearts sake.

    The rhythms you create here are wonderful and the metre, if read out loud and properly, flow like silk or a waterfall you have such a lyrical style 10/10 BB : O) (Report) Reply

    I think, Hazel, it's your best poem I have ever read. Only if you could maintain its meters properly like its rhymes, it would be a master piece. Immortal these lines:
    We are afraid of the lonliness of growing old,
    Leaving our loved one behind,
    Like a cloud without rain,
    Like the sun without light,
    Like day without night,
    Like a mountain without any height,
    Like a magician with a vanishing dove,
    That never returns, (Report) Reply

    This is a very beautiful poem, it makes one sad just by reading this,
    all that's left will be an empty space, that will be filled with love
    the past will always bring sweet memories to our dearest one's. (Report) Reply

    Yes, magic happens when two hearts are in love! Leaving the loved one behind is the greatest agony, true lovers can ever feel! You have depicted love with two hearts beating as one in all its beauty and agony! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
