Kissa had a small contest on her yahoo loop http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kissaskarmakorner/?yguid=80421025 on writing a poem.  I didnt’ enter, but wanted to challenge myself and actually wrote a poem so here it is.  🙂  It was supposed to be using all the letters of the alphabet.  🙂

Love Lost by Jambrea

A soft caress in the moonlight

Before the night comes to an end

Calm before the storm

Dread slowly rolls in

Emotions explode

Feelings implode

Going for one more touch

Hoping its enough

It never is

Just as the night is about to end

Kneeling before your love

Longing for more

Making the mistake

Not knowing what is wrong

Or the next step you must take

Preparing for the worst

Questioning your worth

Resenting the Sun

Suddenly she is gone

Taking the night with her

Unlikely to return

Vacant is your gaze

Welcoming the death of the night

Xenodochy gone

Yielding to the last dawn

Zen like state altered with no tomorrow in site


  1. You write poetry too? This is beautiful!
    Why didn’t you enter it into the contest?
    I have to confess, I don’t know what Xenodochy is. :0

  2. Thanks Jess. I ran out of time that is why I didn’t enter. 🙂 But I still wanted to do the poem. 🙂 I like to write poetry, but this one was a challenge for sure! I had a hard time with the letter X and had to look up words. Here is what it means. 🙂

    Xenodochy: Reception of strangers; hospitality
