night has fallen shadows captivate moonlit skies
silence is echoed thru their halls at night

once upon a time emotion filled their hearts
now jealousy and possessiveness controls the mind

how can it be such a love once so dear
now filled with sentiment of doubt and fear

passion and romance they once shared
hearts dancing a ballad that only they two bared

thru the distance they are miles apart
whispers of i luv u's echo thru their hearts

if only the miles were shortened perhaps he would believe
.. in his arms she yearns to be
.. in his heart she found her destiny
.. in his soul her life feels complete

A powerful poem, you captured the yearning for love perfectly. I hope that the fires rekindle.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? "
Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

Richey Edwards

Very nice and I think love has to be nourished.   James

Oh so true and so sad.  I feel the lonliness and emptiness of a love that once was, but is no longer.  Great expressive piece.  I can relate on many levels.  Keep up the good work!!

Coco,

How sad.  I found myself desperately wanting to try and mend this relationship!  

Good job!

Coco, indeed life is full of "if only's", if only they were "only's"

Wonderful poem, filled with longing. . . touches the heart. . .
