Passion Exstinguished

Down the cold, dark and emty years

Walking alone fighting off acient fears.

Yearning, craving long  denied warmth

Dried up and hollow inside


Passion painfully  smothered now died.

Pointless to beg you have long locked that door

I accepting, cope finding I look for fire no more.

Just give me a little respect and care

I will honour your wishes . I believe  that is fair.


Darkness closes in the freeze between us

Like  winter in a garden all is laid bare turning to dust.

I take  my blanket of words  and wrap myslef up tight

In their warming balm. My head full of stars I drift into the night.


Down the years there have been so many  battles to fight

Hiding behind a smile constantly smothering the need  for flight.

A master at  lieing  and presenting a public face

Knowing  the truth , my failure , my secret is my disgrace .

Down the cold, dark and emty years

Walking alone fighting off acient fears.

Yearning, craving long  denied warmth

Dried up and hollow inside

Passion painfully  smothered now died.

    Riveting willow, but also very painful and lonely….. It seems we often share mood swings in our poetry. My latest is no barrel of monkeys either. Good read…

    Dark and raw – reflections on a murky pond – but if we part the debris and grime, we might just glimpse the beauty within. Alas, the tides of time does not allow it to be so.

    Dark and harsh. Must give yourself a bit of slack. 🙂

    So full of darkness Sweet Willow, but then darkness is ever a friend you can rely on as sometimes the light can be far too harsh. So well written my friend. Hugs always, xPenx
