The Cleansing- A co-write with Travis
Those heartfelt melodies played soft and slow
Causing my life to flash before my face
Ne'er expecting my spirit to be set aglow
Engulfed; memories sweet my heart embraced.
Oh, sweet memories to be found in tears
These tears that fall from eyes in great excess
A poet's heart forever shall be clear
To patiently wait for love's sweet caress.
A tower of pain, no longer to find
For this lesson I've lived and loved for naught
But I shall take the pain and make it blind
Love found, love lost, forever to be taught.
Oh fertile bed, to love again with eagerness
For love will die if not cleansed of bitterness.
Author's Notes:
Thank you,Travis for the opportunity of writing this sonnet with you.  I appreciate greatly your help in lifting this piece off the ground...couldn't have done it without you!  seriously, Linda
Travis' words are written in royal blue; mine in purple

Pass me the cleansing potion hun...about 6 gallons should do it!! This is sweet yet filled with pain. The second last line is one that grabbed me..."Oh fertile bed, to love again with eagerness"...simple devine! Also, "But I shall take the pain and make it blind"...indeed...poke it in the eye with a sharp stick!

Gud on yah two gooders!! =))

Very beautiful sonnet.  It made me a little weepy in the coffee shop.  Both of you did a great job.
