Imagine the love of your life being claimed by time. How many memories wouldn’t you have lurking about? Then years after you look at a picture and you remember all the feelings, all rushing out, leaving you empty but knowing that when you had the chance you made each other happy.
The Challenge: Uncontrollable
Proposed by: Grexxen, the amazing poet and even better friend
This is a poem in the shape of AABBA and this style is called a Limmerick
An Uncontrollable Smirk
Hidden in the dust I found this old picture,
startled I hold it while I felt my emotions a mixture.
I stared into your eyes,
blue as the high skies
and at those lips making that handsome gesture.
A half smile and a half too serious,
An expression everlasting mysterious.
Of lips that lurk
Without fail and make my heart delirious.
It was a sweet, loving yet sadden bitter smile
With your mysterious beguiling spirited style
Everything was there,
Even a touch of dispar.
Because you knew destiny had a plan so vile.
Without the honor of wars as in olden times
Time claimed you without the sound of chimes
Now without fear
And more than a tear
I contemplate this sadness that my heart confines.
Without further doing I lose restrain of all the tears
But then I remember all the laughter of the good years.
It is you that I miss
Having you was a bliss.
Then I close my eyes and with an uncontrollable smirk I cheer.
