Sonnet 'Memory'

After that day of our departure,
I gave my soul nothing but torture,
Calling you to memory all the time,
Made my moments the most sublime,

You were here with me like the sun of dawn,
Sat I looking you ending in smoke every plan,
How can I stop you, knowing no way no reason,
To have forever in my heart a lily, rose' season,

Is this my fate this my destiny? Looted and in despair,
Or with your hand will my hand be ever in pair?
Will ever my tired head rest on your soft arm,
Will my name be written ever on your white palm?

I have a hope you will be mine and mine you are,
Like the moon accompanied by the brightest star,

    Step by step the longing for the beloved gathers momentum, the intensity grows and finally the longing ends. Nice flow (Report) Reply

    This is beautifully constructed. The flow is excellent and I especially love the second stanza, I close my eyes and make a wish that this ends happily. x (Report) Reply

    the stanzas plus end rhyme in pairs-all work out the theme sensationally (Report) Reply

    Superb.... Swept by feelings.... Having a universal msg behind, every person ll feel as if it is written for him.... U reminded me of myself as I saw my own story behind each line... The same yearning and hope to have uniformity... The similies are masterly handled and shows ur mastery over the art of poetry... U r poet by heart and poetry comes to U naturally.... (Report) Reply
