A Sonnet: Love Lost

Poem By Andrew Shiston

I will never visit, nor ever call
You are lifeless, dead, without love for me
I shall go away and will never fall
In love again, you have set my heart free

I will never, ever see you again
Or hear your sweet voice, to me you are gone
Now I sit surrounded by my pain
Once I adored this place I sit on

We came here once with our love, in the sun
And talked long, in your arms I fell asleep
But now you have scorned my love, I must run
I cannot stay, my love for you was deep

I now walk this path and from you I'm free
My head high, my life ahead I can see.

Comments about A Sonnet: Love Lost

I almost believe that I am in love myself, and these words make me feel it. Or...maybe I really am in love, and these words make me remember it.

This Island, this out-thrust spit of land
At the end of miles of stone
Where on the farthest cliff-top
A lighthouse stands alone

The Ship

The sky grows dark, seagulls scream
The wind begins to howl
The storm is close, we cringe with fear
The sea grows larger still

A Symphony Of A Storm

The lightning and crashing of thunder
And squalls of gale force wind
Leave the sea a striped peppermint humbug
To a horizon the eye cannot see

A Day In Late Spring

The fog is lifting and the foghorn silent
On the point of Portland Bill
The lighthouse light extinguished
Only seagulls now are shrill


From many fathoms deep
In the dark and dismal depths
Where day and sunlight disappear
Lays a rusting rotten wreck

Quiet Of The Morning

As the mist swirls in the valleys
And drifts across the fields
The ghostly shadows harden
And the ancient trees appear
