He kneels in the battlefield surrounded by corpses
all around him, he sees nothing but dead soldiers and fallen horses
tears spring from his eyes, he cries out in rage
feeling like a small bird trapped in death's infinitive cage
his body thirsts for rest, but his soul will not relent
so again he sets out on a journey to find his hearts's content
to a place where cherry blossoms bloom
and his life is not crowded by gloom
to a place where he will see his lost love soon
Awakening from a deep dark slumber
she gathers her thoughts, for they are asunder
the dreams she had were of the most terrible event
her love's screaming agony, unable to find his heart's content
though her body is worn and raveged with sickness
and all of her caregivers see it as wreckless
she makes her way slowly to their promise tree
where she lowers herself down to her knees
waiting for her long, lost love to at last be free
The journey he has made, has taken its toll
the onlypower he draws from is his soul alone
slowly he journeys to his destiend location
to that fateful tree where he made that proclamation
he climbs a hill and into his sight
stands that tree with all blossoms in flight
he sees her there sitting in wait
his soul and his body begin to quake
now each step, massiave effort each takes...
She sees him draw near, her dear
at last her darling draws near
in every step he comes closer she quietly thanks destiny's composer
she begins to stand as if in greeting
he still walks on as if expecting this meeting
he stops in front of her and smiles
"every second without you has truly been vile..."
as tears reach her eyes, she begins to cry
she knows that in his words there are no lies
He starts to fall forward, and she catches him in bound
silently they lower each other to the ground
"I missed you my love.." she said quietly
"As I have you..." he said silently
she lowers her lips unto his own
they kiss each other with all the passion they could have shown
he looks up upon his heavenly dove
"Do you remember when we confessed our love?"
she smiles and nods her head in recognition
"Back then my love, we were not in suchterrible condition.."
"I mean it now more than ever..."
Both<"I love you my darling, now and forever"
Their hearts grew still and breaths grew faint
they were swallowed by the love that each other embraced
even in darkness, their love shined on
it was still there
even when all of the cherry blossoms were gone
now with registration complete, all is set
they are now members, of "The Ill-Fated Lover's Quartet"
- Title: The Ill-Fated Lover's Quartet

- Description: My first poem that I wrote 3 years ago. It has to do with the power of the human heart to seek love and harmony with the one you love...even if it is in death. Death is beautiful when it is embraced...but beauty fails to describe it when you are dying with your love. I think the story will affirm my point.
