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.

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
