When Love is Over

Love has slowly faded and days have turned to gray we invite such a sorrow there's no reason left to stay Two sparrows seeking refuge from the storms we create on the breath of spoken words we have finally met our fate Every reason has turned quiet our eyes are always blurred The last kiss has been forgotten and the fervor quickly gone lovers for our time begotten become memories to look upon We lived our last days in silence they were measured and were weighed a distance grew between us before we turned away Every reason has turned quiet our eyes are always blurred The last kiss has been forgotten no pictures left to glean angry voices cut the night words are heard...not seen The days of cold were deeply felt when we built an empty well that filled and flooded over by the rains that came and fell The last kiss has been forgotten it was so long ago we took the path of no tomorrow when we blew out...the candle's glow 7/25/22 contest Gymnopedie No 1 sponsor Craig Cornish

There's such an ache in your lines, Frederic. Sometimes that last kiss is the one we remember the longest. I wish you well in the contest.
