This was originaly a journal entry, but was pointed out to be rather poetic... so with the help of heartlessname, I turned this into a poem. Although, I think I like the journal entry better, not sure though. Anyway, enjoy!

PS: No stupid, lameass, two line comments please... or I'll return the favour, but not so nicely ^_^ Thanks!

Final Blessing

Final Blessing

For reasons purposely unknown,
thinking is harder than dying tonight.
Wishful thoughts carried on
through darkness are embellished
when our lips touch;
my only release.

It's staggering,
the thoughts of your solitude;
alone in the dark, nothing but the constant buzzing,
frequent beating and
eternal pain [without another]
to keep you knowing
you're still alive,
but not ceasing the desire to perish

Is this thought nearly enough
to keep that heart of yours living,
loving, beating?
These constant, harsh reminders
when your thoughts of sleep are close,
but the reality
is so much further?
Where is she?
Where has she gone...

But the next night,
when you're alone feeling that
thinking is harder than dying,
know I'm there.
Feel me,
the ghost trapped inside your soul.
I'll never leave you,
I'll never hurt you
and even though, my presence
may be solid at times--
the weight in your heart--once
held and embraced, my love
will no longer possess that
fragrance of sorrow.

Join me in solitude,
be my angel, as I
am your ghost.
And once our lips finally retreat
to that embellishment once more, our hearts
will no longer grasp that dreadful burden,
but will be in our hands as we
chose to share them with eachother.

  Finally a poem with a little substance that is worth taking the time to say something about...

First I like the fact that this started out as a journal entry and that you took the time and effort to make it into a poem. It still reads a little like "journal prose," but at least its great start. You could try to re-work some of the wording, word order, line breaks, etc, in order to make this read more like a poem... I really don't have specifics for you, and if I did I wouldn't tell you anyways, as i feel it is far more important for the poet to edit and revise, or he/she will learn nothing of the process...

When I first saw that you labeled this a Romantic Poem, I was put off a bit... till i read it... Yes I can see the romance in it, and while I hate most love/romance poems (though I have written a few myself) I have to say that this poem doesn't fall into that ultra-cliché love/romance genre... It has genuine emotion and none of that "Romeo, Romeo, Where art tho Romeo" crap.

Anyways, keep working on this Journal Entry turned poem and it will keep getting better... Good Luck

PEACE and LOVE, gregory

  You've put alot of sentiment into this peice.. something rare I don't read too often. Your prose entry in your journal reads more letter-like in it's form.. which allows it to come togather more naturally - in my opinion.

Nonetheless, you portray a deep sence of passion and concern for this being/person, who may not know needs you at first until that 'touch' or 'embrace'. And I like how you take more of a subdued persona - shadowy & ghostlike but not somber or sullen as the entity you possess.

Nice work.

  Nicely said.

Wording sentimentality is diffcult and you, for the most part, nailed it on the nose.

I only have a couple suggestions.

I would try to take out as many 'you's' and 'yours' as I could. It will flow a bit better, be less repetitive, and more open for others to fall into.

Also, the last line you wrote "eachother". I wonder if it was on purpose and if it was, it's a cool concept, but it should be a concept introduced somewhere earlier in the piece so it doesn't come across as a misspell.

Very nicely done. There is a serious lack of real emotion on this site right now, so this was a breath...

Take Care!

  i had to read this a few times before i fully understood this. it's so sad, but really pretty...
the first and last stanza, i think, were best... but the meaning behind it was beautiful.
