A QUIET EVENING

Did you know that a quiet evening has a nest to rest its burdensome hours after a long and stressful day?

Even when in lonesome darkness, sorrow will always bow down before the kingdom of love's greatness.

A lonely soul lost in painful grief knows quite well the beauty of the heart far exceeds the unexpected atrocities of life.

Likewise, a solitary flower will remain contented if love is the wind gently caressing its frail petals in a deserted wilderness where dead soil has no hope of returning to life.

A man in love does not need a mirror to see his reflection in his woman's eyes.

Sadly, when that mirror breaks, his dreams then shatter into a million pieces beneath the footprints of a remorseless woman.

Today, a quiet evening has become my mirror image as I sit and stare into the lonesome hours of a life filled with despair and a broken heart.

      Sorrow will always be part of love. Love is perfect but we are not. It is why we will always fall short of its GREAT beauty. Stay sweet as always.

  17. "We hurt love...love doesn't hurt us": LOVE this! In fact, I may need to steal it.

    I only write true stories so it's difficult for me to imagine how you write something so devastating about relationship when I know you're a man in love. Intriguing...

  22. This is very deep, and beautifully written, Andy! I enjoyed reading it.

    My poetry seems familiar to you because it is :)
    I am the former "Urban Butterfly" that used to post on my blog: "The voice of my soul". I shut that blog down and started a new one with a more private identity. This blog is just poetry. It's good to reconnect! :)

  24. love offers many twists and turns... for when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable it puts our heart at risk!

    I agree with the other person that commented about your image selections, compliments your poetry very nicely.

      Yes, this poem was born from fiction. We both know love will always be tested by trials and temptations of life. Writing poems like these are also some of my greatest strengths because of the emotions I write with. Thank you for always being so sweet to me.
