And the twinkle in her eyeLike the sparkle of a distant starWould be all that was left for meA classic narration of the parting that will invariably happen. Love your use of the mythology characters, oldegg! Nicely!Hank
Lose one find another.Interchangeable. Your neck of the woods is teeming with Andromedas so I believe.
"Another one bites the dust" Old Egg!! One gone and more to go!! ;) I see the twinkle in your eye!!
Oh, I just love those last 3 lines...
"I would traverse the universeA Perseus in desperate pursuitIn my search for another Andromeda"I'm a wannabe sci-fi chick. :-)
And the twinkle in her eyeLike the sparkle of a distant starWould be all that was left for me.Lovely lines and very accurate for moving on, I love the way your poetry flows and tells a story.
I know people who have lived their entire lives that way. It's fun for awhile, but eventually becomes exhausting.
Well done, indeed. Enjoyed a Perseus in desperate pursuit.
Retrospectively, it sounds like the end of my first marriage. We divorced civilly and have since ended up friends. The kids don't have to worry about Mom and Dad having a big row at holidays, and he and my current husband get along well too. I can recall what I saw in my first husband, although at this point I can't fathom exactly how I fell in love with him.
a sad love lost. Hopefully the search will bring new stars along the search!
