Love Like Stone


Love never came to me that night,
As I sat there, starring at the statue of Eros,
Waiting for a spark.

Evening shone out through romantic clouds,
My heart beats signed for the stars to come out.

But nothing came to me instead.
Embracing me with its somber emotion,
Filling me with what I already was.

And in my act of sorrow, I got up to leave.
I headed east, toward where I came from.
But before I was out of his sight,

I turned back to look at him once more...
And never will I forget the stone of his eyes.

    Very good poem, (maybe) line 5 needs some work on the syntax...
    My heartbeat sighed for the stars to come out.....good idea? (Report) Reply

    Well done, Brenda; keep it up! very touching poem...The last lines are the most poignant ones... I turned back to look at him once more...
    And never will I forget the stone of his eyes. But I am curious to know...did his eyes turn to stone because you were leaving or because they were devoid of feeling just as before? (Report) Reply

    Love never came to me that night,
    As I sat there, starring at the statue of Eros,
    Waiting for a spark.
    Evening shone out through romantic clouds,
    My heart beats signed for the stars to come out....lovely placement of touchy words and that makes me more inclined to your work... beautiful simply gracious to read....10

    Superb, Brenda. The imagery is incredible, and so very mature for one so young!
    Well done - you have a great gift - far beyond the 'angst' of most teenagers. (Report) Reply

    I love your work.
    This poem stretches far beyond the meaning of the word beautiful,
    it's pure brilliancy.
    I can relate to this in every posible way,
    and as such it saddens me;
    Because a writer can't write a masterpiece without fully understanding the feeling provided.
    It's hard to believe that you're 17 when you seem to have the intellect of someone atleast twice your age.

    Never stop writing Brenna,
    thoe I wish that you'll never create a poem as this again.

    The strength of this sad verse lies in it's honesty and the metre used reads just right for the length - - do keep writing Brenda...10 from Fay (Report) Reply
