When We Were Friends

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Read this poem with a glass of wine and a fresh log in the fireplace. In a world sadly battered by institutional disloyalty, friendships, both old and new, are vital to the sustenance of life within us. Ponder the poignant memories of a long-lost friend, and ask yourself if the heroes really have vanished from our midst. Even better, think about your current friends in a new light. ~1000 wds. More

About Rori O'Keeffe

Fools boast while the earth melts.
Love comes just once a lifetime, don't let it leave you.
Music drifts in like stars coming into view.
Greed has brought us low.
There will be another day when people are free.
The one constant is change.
Don't denigrate the ignorant. Lament their voices.
The apochryphal stories of lunatics mesmerize the gullible.
Snow melts and nightmares vanish all at once.


Peace.

To me this poem is a bittersweet tragedy of love lost in a time gone by. I enjoyed the imagery and the language and the pace.
