When It's Over Is It Over, Or Will Echoes Haunt? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

who has not uttered similar words
to 'it's o'er, yes it's o'er! ' perhaps
'Thank God It's Over' or splintered dozens
of myriad forms with similar meanings

often often have these words
been spoken, in so many ways,
in so many different tongues,
with so many differing meanings,

chapters of life are held in these words
chain slaves to unpleasant experiences
we have all been in during our trap lives

book mark learn from all life's lessons
planted seeds may grow into mighty trees
or waste wood cut down flicker in fires

    That was one of the two main points, 'When It's Over' sometimes it comes shock sudden unexpected, or we see it coming but, often the feelings can be wishing for more or less all mixed up, the more was in the last two stanzas, read and meditate on them, but life is like that more or less :) and this is intended as a brevity slice of life.
    Try 'Perspective Stand', 'State Of 20th Century Man', 'Visions From A Dream State' or 'Lemmings Into The Sea' if you want more, I wrote a lot of long poems once, but most want less :)

    And yes after the shock of not writing several times during the last no time few years, I am trying to write a little more again :) I like your comment :)

    This is good! It has a good beginning, but I thought you could have expanded the theme a bit more. You left me wishing for more. when I was getting warmed up the poem comes to a sudden stop, and I yelled, Is that all!

    Within reason, you did well with this.Perhaps a little more poetry here on the subject would have made for a better and more interesting poem, but, oh, well!

    Keep on writing!

    Thanks!
