Night of Bliss

A night full of bliss
Gardenia and tears mingle
Her love walks away

  1. Oh, full of emotions – gardenia and tears mingle!


  2. A revelation indeed—one that many of us have experienced (and once is enough, I might add).



  3. Geraldine says:

    very evocative, engaging all the senses.


  4. poetrydiary says:

    I like the pacing of change through this from joy to sadness, without a sudden switch, like the middle line.


  5. tigerbrite says:

    Especially love the second line, so expressive.


  6. 4joy says:

    since gardenia is one of my favorite scents (altho a bit too cloying to wear often), I read these lovely words in a miasma of sadness


  7. Patti says:

    Lovely, but sad. The first thought that came to me was, “ah, it’s the old one-night stand.”


  8. Grace says:

    Lovely but sad parting ~


  9. Jolly says:

    Lovely word picture, but there is hope.


  10. odyzz says:

    Sad yet hopes intact…captivating!!

    This is beautiful and sad, Becca. Although the tears could be joyful and he could be returning, it doesn’t feel like that. Nicely done.
