Back To Back

Back to back on their solemn brass bed Facing shadows on the wall as the chilled air lingers between their silent breaths. On an old wooden dresser an antique lamp reflects its light on the opalescent glass of a tiffany vase, a mantel clock and a family portrait collage. The light is slowly flickering, dimming over the years. Once radiant and dazzling it is now relegated to a mere ...................glint of light. Their love has gone as the light. Ardent, glowing, and promising The perils of life have worn it's luster It's future is unclear Feelings gone cold ...... Cold as winds on Summers gone Their spirits sleep in different places now Their hearts lost not to be found They still stand to watch the sunrise with their eyes fixed upon the ground
