Poem By Nhuan LeXuan

The saddest dusk emerges in this hollow world.
Sorrows cut so deep, they cannot be grasped by words.
We reach out for miracles, but there is only
Stark silence. We look for the wild rose of Beauty,
But there are only thorns. Promises are broken.
Fragile empires of the heart and soul rise and then
Fall perpetually; until we're overwhelmed.
Now we are merely marking time in twilight's realms.

Comments about Pain

Great poems need to be revisited and reread from time time. This is one of them. Thanks again Dominic and a full score that is so well richly deserved. And keep writing poetic wisdoms.
Thanks so much for your kind and perceptive comments Shaun. It's so good to meet a like - minded person like yourself on this site.
Great poem. Simply a great poem. With an closure end line any poet would die for. With quality crafted poetry like this Dominic, this is why I choose to read you, you have a gift and knack to tune in and then shape any human emotion into words few others can achieve or dream of. A full score and aptly so. Take care and stay blessed.

May I Never Cease To Wonder

May I never cease to wonder:
At the cascading crystal blue waters
Of the waterfall; at each new dawn's
Sweet sunbursts of flesh pink magic.

Winter's Last Rose

Winter's last rose; rose of regret:
O how once your radiant beauty
Shimmered in summer's potent hour.
Now your faded petals offer,

These Days 3

These days, everyone seems distracted by their
Portable universes; their cool, handheld phones.
Nobody seems inclined to engage or converse
With anyone else. O what a sad state of affairs!

A Lament For The Slow Death Of The 1960's Counter Culture

O you were once wild and beautiful
When summer's rays reclined in your hair
And your Being blazed in valleys and hills.
O you were a force so vital and rare


The cold marble is caressed with fiery grace;
In sculpted textures of figurative skin.
She holds the body lost in grief's solemn place.
She cradles Him as though he was a child still.
