Beyond Terra

7,634 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
