Her soul’s like crystal snowflakes
Broken easily amid the dust
Shattered from the pleadings
‘You must! You must!’

She wants to dissolve like ice
Wants to just to melt away
But icy breath of haunting lovers
Entreat her yet to stay

Trampling her gentle heart
Devouring her life’s source
All the while, lovers claim
‘I love only you, of course!’

When her spirit is sapped
Picked dry and left to die
Lovers will ne’er look back
Nor do they hear her sigh

A melting tear of crystal
Lies now beside her cheek
Would life have been so bad
If she were not so meek.

Poet,
I really enjoyed this one.
I hope that this hasn`t happened to you.
This show`s just how fragile love really is.
Thank you for sharing this and God Bless.

Poet deVine ..

This is just lovely.
Sadly, haunting ... but lovely.
Did I say lovely?
Uh-oh ... here it comes again ... LOVELY!

Yes, I do believe I have sung this song before ... 'cept for the meek part, of course ...  

Well done as usual madam, my heart skipped a quarter-beat.  

--Kess



 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Once again Sharon, you tug at the strings of a person's heart. Beautifully depressing!  
I know!
