When Windows Pull Me Forward

When, in hours I held my harms from action, 
the winds of windows pulled me forward,
And asked my leaping loneliness to
plunge the night's air affirmingly. 

Refusing, I reeled and remorsed these retractions,
with hollowed heaving in gasping grief,
and my urn an ornament of deflection,
of dour delayments while I paused in patience.

Selfishly, suitors left me lorn in opaque oustings,
when lunar lights descended upon windows open,
and I lain in lost longing for all that is absent, 
while windows wooed me closer to my eminent expiration.

It's got sort of a traditional feel to poetry. It's well presented, and with great prose. Nice work.

I'm always talking about finding new, original images and phrasing... this is a good example of specific and individuality in writing... there's a surgical precision to this piece... A way of phrasing that straightforward but at the same time very imaginative. You're on my top ten list of poets I wanna read.

"Longing for all that was absent" this is something i think we all do! well I know i do because my mind always goes places that my heart doesnt always follow, never the less. i long for places that are absent. make sense?. well maybe just for me! this is awesome. I read it 4 times and found something different each time!

The imagery was very nice, but I would love to see a little more rhyme/off-ryhme scheme to help with the flow of the work as a whole.
Jessie Ní Leacaí More than 1 year ago
I don't like rhyming poems, I have written very few as I am against nursery style rhyme methods. Rhyme doesn't make a poem flow ... just fyi
