Beyond Terra

7,170 poems read


Had to fall out of love for thee


in order to bear the pain,


of thy being


 


Turned away drooping ears


to lessen the sound of 


of thou troubled cries


 


Drained are nigh of mine eyes


to not share in the flow


of thy tears


 


Displaced my soul


in safe keeping


to spare it from thy


wails and weeping


 


Dust soils the brows


with crumbled dreams


fallen stars now vanish


within life’s rivers and streams


 


How hath this cometh to pass


wherefore the brightness


 t’was of my wishful seeing


 


turn now t’ward the byways


seekth thee their path awry


thy youthful plans doth hide


 


far reached have they now steered


above whence waters fall


deep beyond the weirs
