About the Poem

Each time I have loved I have felt at peace. Each time it ends love doesn't completely disappear. I still remember 'joy'.

Interlude

A brief but peaceful time
When life promised,
Held out hope,
Warmed.

We thought the corner turned,
Our dreams awakened,
Coming true,
Fulfilled.

But love's fire burned bright
For just a moment
Then quietly died
Unfuelled.

Perhaps there was too little
Between us, then.
No substance?
Shallow?

Even so, I still miss you
An ember remains
Reminding me
Of joy.
