The Cremation of Your Love

I cremated you
In scorching flames of passion
His blaze a consuming fire
Now only ashes
I have no tears left to cry
The kind wind bears you away

    Phoenix, the mythical bird, from its ashes is reborn and so is love! Marvelous verse! Top m.

    I love this!... especially that last line "The kind wind bears you away". My mom always told me that when she dies, she wants to be cremated and then thrown into the ocean, a place that she loved. I know a lot of people do it, but holding onto urns filled with ashes is a bit too disturbing for me... well done on this!

    Oh Timothy. I want to be cremated as well. It is really frowned on here, but...I can't stand the idea of being in a box being claustrophobic and all...I know I'll be dead, but I'm a free spirit and I'd love to think my ashes are sprinkled somewhere in nature. We'll see! Yea...the urn thing doesn't sit well with me either. Thanks for the visit! :)

    My pleasure, Sara. Yes, sad...but sometimes inevitable. We do what we can to move on. Hugs

    Damn. Intense, yet sad. A "welcome back" to being free, perhaps? Excellent job!

    Thanks, Drake. :) Sometimes....we just have to let go, eh? I wrote a poem entitled Immortal in which I "expound" on the truth that the heart's dead are never buried...Well, this is the counterpart which says...OK...Get rid of that carcass. The love is long gone and dead...MOVE ON!!!
