The Last Chapter

The exquisite tales spun
come to a close once again.
Leaving adventure behind
and me, in agony.

A pause in the decadence,
excitement and joy.
Left hanging in the abyss
after the final scene.

Oh, but the good stories
last forever though,
revived again and again.
These treasures never die.

May the next threshold
open up a tasteful selection
to fill my needs and desires.
I’m looking for a classic.

  1. A moment suspended in loud air.
    Laughter and words forming sentences, then stories, and evolving into conversations. Delving down into the depths of the writers’ minds. An exchange, a small gesture, the clapping of hands.
    A wild turn of events in such a small space.
    Moments that can never be erased, held in the memory banks of those attending.

    This is a beautiful poem Luna ♡ very inspiring
