Poem - Lost to the Sky

“Lost to the Sky” is a rhyming exercise about the excesses of passion exiling the affected.


Lost to the Sky

We loved with passions I’ll not lie
in the garden of grace conceived
burning too bright for paradise
our ardor doomed two to leave
in the end the gates opened wide
into the wilderness we did flee
walking where the crows would fly
across the plains of stunted trees
filled with bones of those who died
where rocks grew more than weeds
our hearts flagged as spirits tried
to find a place to again believe
that the world may please comply
so dreams of lovers will not die
when Eden is lost to the sky.
