When a smile,
portrayed as guise of fire,
rusts as your presence departs…
When a caress,
lingered with twilight glow,
is but a shadow trailing
When a love, unreturned,
plays master calloused
to a fading hope…
Set a seal upon shallow heart,
you whom my soul desires,
and let me be released.
Heed the echos of a heartache,
anguished sear of reverie.
Feel its scalp bleed down her face,
scathing tears of memories.
See the eyes that once freely smiled
fading with defeat.
As silent fields in which she lies
drift away with night’s conceit.
of a thought unborn.
Ardent flames, its lingering kiss,
bittersweet sigh of a withering embrace.
A mind deceiving, its essence departing,
threadbare wishes abandoned within
the remains of a waning heart –
a heart entrusted to you
