A place of hope

 

A Place of Hope

 

How do you fill the void

Where in your heart

Love was blissfully employed

 

 

 

The home where we once shared

This place where as lovers we were together

Our hearts and minds momentarily paired

 

 

Don’t get too close though

What if

Teetering on the edge of a rocky cliff

 

 

We were scared

Petrified

why did we not allow our souls to be bared

 

 

It was easier to let go

Lose hope

Together we chose to no longer grow

 

 

We slipped down the cliffs jagged slope

Until all glimmer of hope

 

 

Was gone

Each day tinged a little with sadness

Feigning happiness with a mask of gladness

 

 

Travelling to a place of hope,

With my allies

Love and grace

Our journey to find a new happy place

Never lose hope

Fractured Love

Word of the day challenge- Blood

Like a shattered glass

A heart does break

Blood flowing like a flooding lake

Mistakes made

Can we surpass

Disharmony cause a

love to pass

Tear stained face

Sorrow so deep

For her fractured love

She does weep

They remain broken

💔

The crush

The crush

Eyes meet

My cheeks sting as I blush

My heart races, I tremble

I am smitten, I have a crush

Am I a fool

To allow my body over sensibility

to make rule

The choice is no longer mine

My senses alive with thoughts

Body’s entwined so divine

Your name lingers on my lips

Like a secret confession

My eyes follow your every move

My sweetest obsession

Waiting in fervent anticipation

To respond, to accept, to return

My passionate infatuation
