Worn out Love

It is cold; the floor is damp,
It is mostly dark; there is no lamp.
Bars on the windows shield from the elements,
The tenement of the mind is diligently redolent.
Of the warmth he once felt
And the happiness that filled the space he dwelt
Now he cowers in the corner hands clasped around his knees,
Resting his head on them, while shivering from the breeze. 
He glances over at the open cell, 
Overwhelmed by fear to leave the place he knows so well.

    Sounds like love can have holes in it! Must be somebody else, you're too loveable.

    What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your outstanding poetry with us Sidney. Love, Carol
