59 (who?)
Like the frosts spread across valleys silent and dreary
Ever my longing lost in shimmers of shadow & wind
And days bled into years.. the tides became deserts
Thru seasons untamed, I hunted and found her gaze,
peering in a song deep and hallowed
Horizons quivered like ghosts cast in Winter’s dream
— where hearts once bloomed a fabled sky
Lest the Moon would bestow solace upon my dread:
I am but madness, haunted by her solemn breath
My soul shall yield to this mythic abyss —
wandering forests bereft of Autumn’s decree
We are warriors in a ballet of snow darkly falling;
betwixt worlds forgotten, and lives entombed ...
‘Whispers in the mist — two spirits — forever calling

— Arthur Crow © 2013
This short poem was inspired by ‘Etain’ from Centurion

This is very pretty, even if some of your word choices are a tad bit archaic. I like.

Thank you for reading. My word choices are archaic on purpose - it's a style I admire the most in written art.

:) Alright, let's see...

To me, this work here is, in my opinion, a melancholic and gothic poem; I say gothic because the person is searching for a higher avenue to find his beloved. But this material world is not providing any means to find such an avenue. All the more reason for why... in the end... she is waiting for him to come.
