    dotswait an eternitydots

    In an elegant trance, she glides across the stony floor.
    The moons illuminating glow beckons her forth once more.
    A nightly longing, resurrecting from centuries ago.
    Delicate pale face, nearly apparitional, detached.
    A wisp of a thin hand, draws aside a dusty curtain.
    Cobwebs fall and entangle in ratted, silvery hair.
    She glances the streets, prisoner in her lofty tower.
    Searching for one in particular, her darling at sea.
    Lifeless grey eyes realize, again, he will not come today.
    Retreats to her cold chair, to linger in melancholy.

    An age long gone, countless yesterdays past.
    She dressed in a pastel shade of yellow.
    Complimentary with rosy pink cheeks.
    He looked out of place, fancy uniform.
    A short ending embrace, one long goodbye.
    White gloves wipe away arising blue tears.
    Those vivid grey eyes glisten as she cries;

    “I’ll wait an eternity for you.”

      I love the imagery, the tone, the word choice, and the very very very specific use of colors, this piece is amazing.

    The only error in it's construction is the punctuation.

    Each line seems to end abruptly, stopped in it's elegantly flowing tracks by a PERIOD.

    And not the gender specific sort either.

    I would suggest trying to limit your use of punctuation to make poems flow better.

    Read it out loud, stopping at periods and pausing at commas, and you'll see that the flow suffers from poor punctuation choices.

    Despite this however, I do indeed love this poem.

    I will add it to my favorites. Of which there are no others.

      I am always saddened by the lonely ghost who waits forevers for their loves return.
    This had good visualization and I liked how you used words with color to offset the gray.
    Love,Peace,Joy! tif

      This really conveys a genuine love. Unlike most poems revolving around this subject, you have injected a slight feeling of melancholy rather than seduction or hatred. Love is a stubborn, yet patient thing, as your poem has displayed.
    There was also some lovely imagery that really strengthened the character's emotion at this time. The oxymoron of love being sweetsorrow is so true, as you're obviously aware.

      Love...hmm, this is a hard one to interpret, it’s filled with loneliness and longing, but then there is the eternal love that enters into the picture. Waiting is horrible, and to hope another day is too, this is bittersweet. To expect something so unpredictable. This is quite disturbing, but in a good way, it gladdens my heart that although she is faced with such extremes she still is patient, such dedication and commitment to her love…Love is a hard emotion to capture into words, you did it well…How sweet, well done. This is beautiful, keep writing.
