Old Feelings Poem by Sandra Fowler

Old Feelings

Rating: 5.0

The moment was too intimate to keep.
We had to make a compromise with dusk
To keep the blue from entering our bones.
The shadow of old feelings held us fast.

I think some things should never have been said
Over those cups of coffee that we shared.
The warmth of smoke brought all the longing back
To drink the landscape in each other's eyes.

This poem made me feel as if I was back in the land of utopa, wher love and contment never stops. I have found that in life and now in your poem. What beautiful words. cheers Sylvie

just had some time to read some more poetry-i like this piece very much-using strong imagery-it teaches the reader how to let go of loss; yet embraces propriety at the same time. thanks for posting it. tovli

life's like that! nothing to much regret. we just take things as they come on. things go amiss despite all care. But worrying alone doesn't help. Good poem Sandra. Regards, Dr John Celes

How do we manage all those feelings of loss.I think that God has more than one hand in it.This is so deep and very special.Love Duncan

The poem creates nostalgic feelings in me! I would like to qote from Shelley's 'Skylark'; - 'We look before and after, And pine for what is not, Our sincerest laughter, - With some pain is fraught, Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddeast thoughts ' For your poem 10+ -Raj Nandy
