Less is more, undo;
I loved her for

The absent rain, the lonely
in the midnight hour

I loved her in darkness,
less than more

without adore, undo;

I loved her no more

Help me someone please...

I am that sort of situation like finding yourself in the middle of a conversation where you think you missed some simple point that would explain what it was all about....

Now I am going to search back through your stuff to see if I can find any clues

the lonely lour
I think this was written as a sort of note/e-mail to self. Kind'a like self acceptance.

I think.

Regardless, I enjoyed.

Thanks Lucie
Thanks Lucie I can sort of see that now.

I did go back and read all your stuff (and comments) James but some is a bit too complicated for me to understand' I had better leave it to the experts.....

One bit I did understand (and like)

Valley of Gods

Like beasts of the
darkest hour
they feast on all that
is pure and plagued by

Less is More
I have to say I loved this poem. I read it and reread it. Your opening line: "Less is more, undo" did it for me right there. So many times we try to do more than we really need to, we try harder than we should.

This verse:

"The absent rain, the lonely
in the midnight hour"

Was awesome!
Loved, LOVED, LOVED! "the absent rain"!! I could feel the loneliness in the quiet night.

Had to look up the word "lour" which is a treat to find a new word and one that I particularly find intriguing.

1. (esp of the sky, weather, etc) to be overcast, dark, and menacing
2. to scowl or frown

The coming apart of love in the end, the "loved her no more" tugged at my heart.

I am a fan today! Thank you so much for posting. Less IS truly MORE today!

Be blessed!
