Infinity - Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb

When I missed you
on a fateful day,
and my mental sustenance
was drained with misery,
I cursed the late fall sun
and cried - let darkness come.

Spin rotund flare
until you are a cinder
and winter befalls
the universe
with colder stars
and older lights,
then night will reign
for eternity across
forevers sights.

- and me an ancient lady
in timelessness unfree
will wander the spatial deserts
into infinity.

    Wonderful poem, needing only a comma after the word SPIN on line seven and an apostrophe in the word FOREVER'S in line fifteen.
    Well done, and congratulations on having it selected as Poem of the Day! (Report) Reply

    In sadness, when one wants to isolate oneself, every thing including light is a curse. Naturally one needs sun to go down quickly. A touching poem, indeed. Congratulations! (Report) Reply

    Sadness expressed so beautifully in a situation we must all face seeing as you write colder stars and older lights, there is one bright light for we will all meet again, for I have booked a seat on the front row near the choir!
