broken heart

Carpe Diem @1181 broken heart

in misery
he lives remembering
the rose petal path
she walked in white illusion
if only love had been there

    1. I thought the prompt poetry had that feeling, too.

    Love can take different forms under various pretexts.

    1. Was just thinking about all the folks who had made it to 50 years together.

  5. Sad,yes but beautifully written. Now what if this were a woman talking about her loss...
    in solitude
    wrapped in erotic memoirs
    a daisy petal path
    he walked in empty promises
    she never expected love.

    1. As we prepare to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary the end of this month a reread of this makes me feel so fortunate. Glad you appreciated the tanka.
