Faded Loved


It’s painful

Knowing that he who is mine

Shall be blinded by other visions

Other worlds

And forget what has been between us


Yet I suppose this is love

The sleepless hours spent

In thought of him

The silent tears

The muffled cries

The painful yearnings

Of the heart and soul


And emotions blown about

In a meaningless display

Lifting from below

The scattered ashes of our love

Extinguishing what little union

Lay between two broken hearts
