Twilight - Poem by Ilari Rahja

How odd, my love.
It seems now.
For us to have strayed.
Been set apart.

In such a way.

Today, as I sat.
Celebrated, your day.
Alone - Lit candles.
Champagne and all.

Without you near.

Such tragedy!

I picture you.

Me, in a dance.
In play - Together.
As we were.
Still wish, to be.

All good, that was.
Intentions, deeds.
Turned to waste.

As the sun sinks.
Amidst red, orange glow.
Every hour, a bit closer.
To horizon.

Lower, it floats.

Spreads, its azure wings.
Across purple shadows.
Clouded light.
Periwinkled sky.

In its cover.
I pale.
A smoke - A wight.

I stare at thee.
Seeing, remembering all.
Drifting across.
Memories, I reach.

For you, I fail my hold.
Unable to grasp.
Touch, gain a single feel.
So I drift, you fade.

Our destinies, common fate.

Us ever evades.
In the distance.
Thy wishes, memory.
Hope, waning light.

Together, we just might.

Seagulls - Soaring white, as flame!
Sparks, they all drift and fly.
Freedom, what not?
But an apparition.

Aspect, of life - Delusion.
Thus loved - Much wanted…
