Best Poem of Barry Middleton

Two Deceptions

both are like the falling leaves
a tale that no one ever believes
a passing season and a lover

coming and going of perfume
revolves in an enchanted room
till love consumes a fevered heart

death is the breast of darkest night
a western moon fades from sight
surrendered to its mausoleum

yet we cling to seasons past
affections that can never last
antique lies we choose to cherish

like gardens where maidens stray
and angel spirits croon and sway
and wait to satisfy our hunger

Read the full of Two Deceptions

A Woman

a woman I knew for a moment
when we danced for a season or two
was the comfort of stars and midnight
and a waltz and an I love you

why oh why
can love never stay
seasons turn
then drift away
