When Velvet Turns to Stone

When velvet turns to stone
When heart forgets the home
When lovebirds all have flown
When only hate is shown

When kindness turns to night
When blindness covers sight
When fear chases delight
When dreams have taken flight

When trust is torn in two
When old gives way to new
When dry replaces dew
When words are listless, few

True velvet will remain
The texture still the same
It lives up to its name
Plush softness is its claim
It will not suffer blame
It will not taste of shame

True velvet will remain……

Eileen Manassian

    indeed, true velvet remains no matter how long the time, Eileen. It remains true to its texture and design. Such lovely thoughts and lines. hugs

    What a touching write! Let the true velvet prevail and propogate.... And let the trust unworthy leave the place for all the good:-) Deep meaning in this capsule dear Eileen Love, Anulaxmi

    Love the symbolism here.. The courage and fight without it changing the softness and beauty of Velvet. Yeah, Teach.. I capitalized Velvet. You get it!

    Oh when people change and so their love nest..When new replaces the old...What happens then apart heartache...That velvet gives hope..that everything might change but some passion will remain..So true Eileen..So true...Love it.
