Rainy grey days, appears like the sky is falling down,
All around the mystical splendour of Killeen Castle,
Horses grazing on it's fine fertile pastures,

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is about an estate callled Killeen Castle, that my partner and I lived in the gate lodge there for a few years. Unfortunately our relationship was doomed by a clash of our personalities! !

    The song, was an elusive combination of love and hate,
    Too late, my persona shattered into tiny broken pieces,
    That was my fate.
    What is lotted can not be blotted but we can not erase our past from the canvas of our life.

    The only foes were ourselves. I love that line. I think most of us have had lost love in our lives
    Sometime we can't quite understand what happened. Sometime I think we are not supposed to. Lovely poem

    No time to dance, our chance of a dream life gone,
    The song, was an elusive combination of love and hate,
    Too late, my persona shattered into tiny broken pieces,
    That was my fate.
    It's beauty of words and thoughts..................10

    A beautiful write.....so long as the joys of life outnumber the pain, so long as pain teaches us something, we've lost nothing and gained much - compassion and empathy are two of pain's gifts! I truly enjoy your work! (Report) Reply

    It's painful to see the inevitable coming early in the poem and then it being obvious and unavoidable at the ending. At the very least though, you got a good poem out of it. (Report) Reply

    The intensity in the poem reveals the feelings the poetess had at the time of writing it. Very deep and touching Hazel. Marvelous wording and the imagery is of high qualities. Well done Hazel. (Report) Reply

    What a summit of poetic expressions! These broken pieces have made this piece a real literary gem of the kind. Nostalgic and lost in sweet reminiscences you have really re assembled a thing of beauty. (Report) Reply
