Dancing in the Dark




Perhaps today I shall be taught to forget you
To laugh and smile without the thought of you
Climbing that wall of indecision, for the nth time
Turning back....hastily running back
Closing my eyes, breathing a sigh
Embracing your memories like water with the tide
Gushing forth, slowly drowning me
Yet lovingly caressing me, with memoir's of faith and love and lies
That I myself webbed somewhere along the edge of disguise
Carry me along until I remember not
the pain of losing, the pain of treachery,
Forgive me my sunset, forgive me and forget
That I ever came, that I ever came again
Only to disturb thy heart...
Only to wash away the colors
Of that fiery sky's lark
Go while you still can, and leave me dancing in the dark....

  1. "Perhaps today I shall be taught to forget you"

    That is an opening line that is unforgettable. I was breathless, reading this, with its lyrical evocation of some of my favourite Spanish poets, until the final "Only... only" refrain. Wonderful.

  5. "Forgive me my sunset"...that's beautiful, addressing nature in such a personal way, as the impending night closes in. Spellbinding.

  8. I particularly like the way you weave human emotion with natural occurrences... memories and ocean's waves, reverie and sunset. Lovely imagery and effective device.

    Just cannot avoid.

  23. Nice rhythm, a light pace, the emotions of getting away from a heartbreak. Sometimes one wants to cherish the memory and it's just painful to, and then one wishes one can forget. Enjoyed your poem, thanks for sharing.
