Evening's Solitude

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

Recalling your eyes that once never wearied of mine
Tonight the weight of uncertainty keeps my lids wide
Envisioning love and passion waning like the moon

Remembering still...
The baby breathing quietly
Passion wide awoke…these are
Times to keep awake and watching
stars in the distance sky...
Childhood screams and dreams are
behind, like our last passionate kiss

My dear we're just tired so,
let's just sleep
Eternity lies far ahead
Leaving love behind

passion waning like the moon, past passionate kiss .. with heaves and a sense of loss of the lost love..... that was what struck me as i read your poem. like the words and the images you used in this poem conveying the emoyions so well. thank u tony
the third stanza is the best... i can see it! wow, nice write!
beautiful autumn canvas...love eternal; yes, for those who could relish the values within...10
Hon’ble Poet Ma’am taken patent on poeming on final exit- separation - de - partment - dislodgement - cleavage…still the poetic melancholy calorie makes readers calorie oblivious [lolol]…will lead to gain of fatty knowledge and flabby joy by the readers…… thanks sharing… Ms. Nivedita UK 10/10

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

The Power Of Love

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids

A Loving Partner

We found each other under the evening sky
the moon sat directly over our heads and sent
tidal waves that made our hearts bulge with love.

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world
