Long gone

Gone are the butterflies in the stomach
Wounded they lay on the sand
Fluttering still with the hope of rising again

Gone are the winds that once soothed my heart
Now flowing past me
Casting no spell

Gone are the days when hues of love filled the skies
The birds no longer sing tales of glory but despair

Gone are the days when poetry of love cascaded from my heart
Heart that once brimmed with passion
And now left hurt and forsaken

Dying to feel love
Begging to get love
Burning to write love

I refuse to lie wreathed in anguish
Therefore
I set my path hearkening back to our days utmost cherished
Revisit memories etched in my soul

Come O dearest
Let us rekindle the flame of love
The flame that’s put off since time immemorial
The flame that was kindled for first time
We laid eyes on each other!

  6. This one! I love love it all. Wanted to pick out some lines but on a second read it’s all fantastic and I would have to quote the whole poem. Beautiful, heartbreaking, and somewhat hopeful work! Really really really great!
