Violett Leinwände

I looked at you, then looked away

I had the words, yet failed to say

What brought me here, to your realm from mine

What sought gold, through the sands of time

What made each day, sunshine and love

What made white clouds appear as doves

What looked like canvases of violet at night

What showed green meadows bathed in light

But in the end, yes, I failed to say

I had the words, yet I looked away….

  1. Lovely poem. Often we find ourselves in that situation, where we want to tell someone how we feel, but we don’t and later regret it. You’ve brought that feeling out very well. Love the imagery. Great work! 🙂
