Closed The Door

Rating: 5.0

On a cold winter's morning,
Watching, Luna, Spica, and Jupiter,
Dance through the Heavens.

Recalling, thoughts of you.

Saying hello to distant memories,
Since then,
It has been dreams of centuries past.

I miss you very much.

It is nice to be in love but very painful losing it. Keep hope and go on singing as love is in the air and you may get it back. Very nice poem with lots of emotions. Congratulations.

This is a fairly heart-wrenching poem. I must admit though, it took some time for it to sink in fully. I needed to turn off the audio and read it several times, at different intervals. For me the title and the, if I may say, rather clinical reading of the audio created a false emotional distance that meant I needed to apply myself a little more diligently to find its center. The line that most troubled me and begged for resolution was: I want to hold your Soul in my arms once again. Everything else in the poem seemed so grounded and fixed that wanting to hold the soul was too abstract and out of place. And then in a moment it all shifted for me as I came to understand the situation. The narrator didn't actually close the door, the door was closed on him by the death of his lover. He is, in fact, holding her soul in his memory but pines for something more concrete and tactile. The door, I think, is more like a coffin's lid. And all the rest then falls neatly into place with a bittersweet sadness. Touching.

The poem brings to fore the pain of a broken heart after such a wonderful innings of an eternal love witnessed by stars in its heyday. Though, inconsolable, may the memories fill and assuage the feelings created by the void. We are with you, Ronald.
