Lost to words poetic
and post notes and photos about your poem like Silent One.
Humble heart naked like a winter tree,
yearns for seasons to remain evergreen.
Furtive eyes have disturbed this reverie,
soul stands still like nonchalant figurine.
Walking away to leave one heartbroken,
her shallow soul left no apology.
Regret kills the tongue from words unspoken,
lost are lyrics from our anthology.
Wounds so deep, nerves drown in crimson fluid,
tears bleed sorrows lost to words poetic.
Ink seeks metaphors to show whats ruined,
so the heart feels peace like an ascetic.
In the midst of pain, veiled scars do not fade,
constant reminder of all mistakes made.
