Reflections of the Impossible
Ripples across the mirror; displacements
Of time render formless our human bond.
Vanishing, across the border of chaos,
All rational thoughts, like criminals, abscond.
I tried to decipher your distant gaze;
Those corridor'd eyes were no place to hide.
In the spaces where words commonly reign;
A single voice heard - the silence of pride.
Punctuated by apologies, torn
From me, in fragments of incompleteness.
Lakes of lightning illuminate the night
While I, in their sights, revel in weakness.
Now I have lost my quicksilver angel;
The moment we kissed was a moment too brief.
Clinging, to a tattered robe of recompense,
How could she ever know of my belief
In the impossible?

"and careless whispers of my passionless heart,

bring to the mind inexhaustible pain,

a devious fire that smoulders the rain,

and yet again;life takes a false start."


....sounds familiar...and yet exquisite.

A beautifully eloquent shaping of words used to express reflections of the impossible. I loved the form and rhyme scheme, it adds a deeper dimension to the words. Congrats on the award, truly well deserved with this poetic gem.

James, you are truly a gifted poet. Your word selection is purely exquisite. I like the form you chose for this piece. IP lends well to a steady even moving piece, especially with the rhyming scheme. I did however notice that like a certain other British author (from the 16 century) you have a couple of lines with extra beats in the first Stanza. Line 3 and 4, where you talk about chaos and criminals. Genius!

Beautiful! Love is fleeting...Yet without the belief in the impossible, how miserable would we all be?

Awesome job, James...

James, this is a wonderful reflection on the transience of love... and I liked the way you break up the whole structure with this last, open, solitary line.
Comment By: FreeAdri on July 24, 2006 03:01:58 AM Report

Impressively beautiful!!!  You know really how you pen a brilliant piece James.  It is such a joy to read your poetry... I give that same feel and intensity the old masters did...  Brilliant one, once again... I love it.

Now I have lost my quicksilver angel;
The moment we kissed was a moment too brief.
Clinging, to a tattered robe of recompense,
How could she ever know of my belief


In the impossible?

The very heart of you and your thoughts!! I love your poems.. Later She

"Vanishing, across the border of chaos,
All rational thoughts, like criminals, abscond."  I really like that line, James.

Finding someone who shares your dreams is a rare thing. Sharing a vision of the possible is hard enough to pull off..IT would be great if you could put audio to your stuff.. Your poems cry out for the voice of a staage actor, to my mind...yer pal, len
