Devoid of Sustenance

This night of misery my essence rapidly descending
Tears like summer rain cascading
O for this dark wintry night prolong
Breaking heart aches so forlorn

Circumstance, distance always impeding 
In silence apprehensive heart conceding 
Devoid of sustenance waiting in anguish
Quiescent alone in sorrow I languish

As posts interweave deferring
Father Time nonchalant delaying
Yet, essence nourish essence elating
Unadulterated love relaying 

Tonight, on borrowed wings my heart must fly
To sheltering warm arms in which I'll lie

    You should have been born during the British Romantic Period, Audrey, because this poem matches well with the love poem of Keats, Shelley and Byron. Terrific writing to express a deep sense of sadness. The last two lines are magnificent! Love, carolyn (and you called me Doris in a recent comment, but I surely know how easily that mistake can be made)
