After the Love

I love flowers.  Most weeks I treat myself to a bouquet or two of assorted flowers.  This last week I brought a beautiful bouquet of roses with the intention of taking some pictures.  Well life got in the way and that never happened.

They have since dried out and need to be discarded but I still wanted to take a picture of them.

When Love Dies

When love dies,
It ceases to exist.
And the flame that used to be,
Ceases to persist

It feels like a wound that won’t stop bleeding,
Like it’s your last breath you’re about to take,
And it feels like your soul’s watching,
And all you can do is pray you wake.

When love dies,
It’s like everything slows down to a stop
The tears that came rolling down your cheeks
Are taking ages to drop

To the cold tiled floor
I fell onto my knees,
It felt as if the light followed her shadow,
As she slammed closed the door…

Love died,
I know this because my soul died too.
And it was hurting as much
As all the pain I put her through.

When love died
I ceased to exist
The only thing that kept us together…
Ceased to persist.

Eternal

For last weeks WP Photo Challenge Twinkle I posted a picture of some candles and offered Georgette who blogs at “A Walk on the Bright Side” to use the picture for one of her poems.

Georgetteann created “Eternal” for my Twinkle.

Make sure you go and visit A Walk on the Bright Side.

WP Photo Challenge: Converge

For this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Converge,  I thought of many ways to show how things converge but nothing seemed to be “just right”.    Then I notice the night sky and it came to me.

Night sky converging on the sun.

When I took this picture I thought of the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.  I first heard parts of this poem from the movie Dangerous Minds back in mid 90’s.  I do not know much about poetry, I just know what I like and I like what I believe to be the message in this poem….to keep fighting.

Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.
