Betrayal


Our glances clashed,
Met.......
A single tear
Pearl like,
Wet.......
Rolled bravely down
My lonely cheek,
Your eyes darted away
Guilt ridden
So weak
Your face emotionless,
My eyes, a caress,
A single nerve twitched,
Like a dark poem
Across a page bewitched,
And I looked,
For a sign
On the blank canvas of your
Lying face,
Trying to see a lamp of hope
Light up
Those vacant eyes
Which I thought were mine
Eyes from which I had drunk deep
Like a glass of heady wine
But to no avail
You turned
Eyes downcast
And walked right away
From the empty spaces
Inside my reproachful
Bleeding heart

    It's a beautiful poem!
    'A single nerve twitched,
    Like a dark poem
    Across a page bewitched, ' - Is a beautiful expression!
    'And I looked,

    Lying face,
    Trying to see a lamp of hope
    Light up
    Those vacant eyes
    Which I thought were mine' - Very poetic indeed!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
