Midsummer Night's Melancholy...


Midsummer Night's Melancholy by Michael Sowa
Magpie Tales #276


they rushed and bustled
frantic to cling to
somewhere
far from here

a room with a view
of the sun
of trees
of the sea

they said

they said
they loved me

they said
they would
provide for me

they said 
they would could come back

so
in my small space

I'm pining through
the hollow hours

for 

my room
with a view


but 
from my window

if she only knew...

if she only knew...

I get a real feeling Gemma of lose and wanting from this poem.
Very well written.

so much melancoly, so much sadness, so much emptiness :-(

Is that view going to bring joy or just more melancholy?

Full of the angst a pet would feel while waiting. Nice take.
