Here I Stand (standard:poetry, 149 words)
Author: RozinanteAdded: Dec 17 2001Views/Reads: 2872/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
The regret and despair of love unfulfilled.

How often have I stood like some forgotten sentinel of time            
Upon this radiant shore that I abjure.                                  
I stand forlorn and though they shake me and implore,                   
I am unmoved, unmovable.                                                
I do endure. 

The waves surrender at my feet but they erode and I retreat            
Until I find that what I stood upon is gone.                            
I stand so still and yet I melt inside and cry,                         
I seem unmoved, unmovable.                                              
I am alone. 

This trailing wake describes the path to you I cannot take,            
Another boat that I farewell while others sail.                         
I stand in silence when it comes my turn to speak,                      
I am unloved, unlovable.                                                
I am to blame. 

The tide engulfs the embers of a dream no one remembers                
While the coldness of my heart quenches the sun.                        
I stand defeated by the carnage of your love,                           
I am defined, definable.                                                
I am undone.
