Poetry Magnum Opus

Haunting Refrains


Recommended Posts

Sorted by heart and memory

Interlaced threads of history.

Stashed away deep, most solemnly

No longer allowed a part of me.


Balanced and weighed against my heart

Treasuring joyful, as forlorn departs.

A chosen few always remain

Haunting with their saddest refrains.

fader you are catching the sound of poetry so well. I love how this sounds. The expressions are so alive and deep.


Thank you so much for sharing my friend.

Hi fader,



Your beautifully worded poem has a sense of emerging from the dark ("forlorn departs") into a more peaceful, perhaps reconciled moment:


"sorted by heart and memory

interlaced threads of history"



is a fabulous opening!


You convey a catharsis-like coming to terms with the pain of the past and I love the way you close the poem with a sense that you still treasure the memories and moments, despite their "saddest refrain" .




Thank you,
