Say Farewell Deep, Dark Breeze

Kenneth, if you have followed him, is not a self-promoter. He can write about most anything. No, he is not a boastful guy.


Say Farewell, Deep, Dark Breeze

I stand, you stand, all at alone waiting

Winds kissing your hair, we look to the skies.

You curse, you promise with empty debating.

Your feet tremble, your maidens love your lies.

Dark, dark hair with tongue so dry

Choosing your throne so easily it’s gone.

Violent kings, rusty things, all come to die.

But I see only my image with you alone.

You gave me no vow, no promises given

Not even drip one of pure spring essence.

You, my beauty, are going slowly, ne’er driven.

Mountain tops, ravens stop to touch your cresence.

Why beg me with your eyes of fire coals

Alluring such beauty in your lips of red?

Menacing, battles lost, a crying foal.

Singing a single song while you drown in bed.

I’ll always cherish your brunette hair

Flowing unfettered, wild, and madness made.

I find you once again, and kiss your air.

We find your solace softly laid.

Thank you, Gypsy Rose and Elijah. Your comments are Very Appreciated.

Elijah . . .appreciate your kindness and thoughts. Yes. I have been married (with) my companion for 44 years. And I do tell her my heart ever so often. Sometimes she gets suspicious, but that is okay.


Kenneth Avery on September 04, 2019:

Sweet Gypsy . . .thank you so very much for the sweet words. I feel so depressed when I finish one of these, but I would not trade any other feeling than this one.

Write me soon.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on September 04, 2019:

A most expressive and romantic poem. Loved this.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on August 30, 2019:

What a romantic you are, old boy Kenneth, writing out those lines of verse like Cupid. I thought you were married (LOL) so are you, in your old age, writing to her what you couldn't do as a young boy?

It was very well written, I opine, Thanks for sharing it.
