Poetry Magnum Opus

The last song of a nightingale

found me standing on the shore

it stored its secrets in my heart

guiding me to the one i adore.

Take my wounded hand we

will walk across the earth

collect the treasures from the light and dark

to give our love its rebirth.


I hear your heartbeat echo in the sunrise

i make contact with infinity in the depth of your eyes

i will sell the nightingales song

and buy you the four seasons

be my own true love

my soul is fatigued from supplying you with reasons.


The darkness in your soul

sinned against the ghostly

caroling offspring of the wind,

i want to see your loveliness brighten

with the night time skies,

from the remains of your dreams

provide our silence with its alibis.


The tides and the sea

are waiting for the nightingale

to tell our story,

with the rays of the

sun and moon i will rebuild your heart

so it is sensitive when it is light and dark

along with the nightingale and

her song we will never again be apart.

What a refreshing change to read sincere, well written love poetry without having to wade through layers of metaphor. Enjoyed. Benjamin
