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....

from the humble world of a Kulasa

participating for the first time in

Open Link Monday

the imaginary garden with real toads


  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.

  2. Very well said, Kulasa. You write well I am very impress. Thanks for the visit I do appreciate it.

  3. You are very welcome to the imaginary garden with real toads. This is a wonderful introduction to your work. Very wistful and reminiscent of the classics.

  4. I, too, love your opening line, and the wistful reverie......nice to see you at Toads.

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

  6. Lovely post ... stunning sunset and a beautiful poem .... Greetings from Irene

  7. ... reminded me of a friend, this makes me sad !

    I love the poem by the way, always do !!!


  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.


  9. I like the melancholy and emotional write...I too like the opening lines...
