Despair Poems: 293 / 500

Cotton Candy Trees

Rating: 5.0

No more, those blissful days
when we watched cotton candy trees
blossom in the Spring,
listened to the trickle of silver streams
and the whisper of the wind
through tall grasses.

All was well with the world
and life was full of promise.

But its an ill wind that blows now,
stirring my soul with bleak despair.
Everything comes to an end,
and I can see it in your eyes.

We are left with only an empty silence,
each with our own thoughts.

It’s the end of all things,
of all things that we once knew.

You are leaving....

but I will follow you.

Love this very sad but oh so true poem concerning life as it once was, and love Thomas's comment/poem to go along with it! Such great poets here! ! ! Although it is sad, it is still amazing, Val, and I can relate all to well. {{{hugs}}}

Even when thoughts are very sad, there is still comfort to be found in sharing them.

The pessimistic veil being transparent and the melancholic note being quite natural in drawing such pictures, dear Valerie, you always stick to your poetic urge of experimenting with the innovative in painting life... Go ahead.
