He was a thing of beauty that could not be claimed
a phenomenon of passion that could not be tamed
I don’t kid myself anymore, he was never mine;
Even as we met I knew it was too good to last;
The brief interlude of happiness would be worth the pain;
written for PROMPT 14 “THE MUSIC OF…” from http://mindlovemisery.wordpress.com We had the following 4 Jeff Buckley songs for inspiration: Lilac Wine Forget Her So real Morning Theft

Gorgeous Melanie the rhythm is divine, I think love is worth risk worth pain too
Thank you! Indeed, better to have loved and lost…
The new prompt is up Melanie if you are available and interested =)
I’ll get on it…fun theme 🙂
Thanks Melanie can’t wait to see what you come up with
Self-delusion is sweet when it lasts but can shatter so easily and cut so deep. I am more sensitive to format now with your poetry and even how you italicize certain phrases is meaningful. Love the rhymes and flow of the poem. 🙂
Thank you so much I really appreciate this comment. I try to pay attention to formatting and I find WP a little limiting…
Gorgeous, I am yet to do the prompt, but I am enjoying a lot the entries of everyone.
I love the way your rhymes are so rhytimcal, it reminds me of singing and swaying.
Thank you, I look forward to reading your entry..you write so beautifully 🙂
Beautiful! Jeff Buckley is such inspiring music to listen to while you write.
I wasn’t familiar…but listened to these four and a couple more:)
It is better to have loved and lost…unless it’s chocolate cake.
🙂 mmm chocolate anything
Beautiful…flow…love…fun…lust…gone. Something to remember. Wonderful poem.
Thank you darling:)
Thank you kindly!
A painful interlude…you have written it so well.
Thanks Susie, I appreciate you reading and commenting 🙂
Great rhythm and very well-constructed. Each of the first two lines even have the same number of syllables. When a poet has this kind of sensitivity, her work will possess a musical quality. 🙂
What a wonderful compliment. Appreciate it greatly 😀
Just beautiful. Simple rhythm, easily spoken to the world and mind; full of recognition of love’s suffering as well as it’s pleasure. Ace work.
I sincerely appreciate not only your compliment but that you took time to read and comment!
steamy! Wow sometimes the heartache is worth the moment of experience I think.
Glad you liked 🙂 I do think the fleeting moments of happiness are worth the price…if we hold onto them for more just a moment and let them nurture us.
There is a certain rhythm to your words.. it is lovely to read it out loud.
I’m so pleased that you liked it.
