Worthy of Cost

Love's silent sad tears remain where they fall To burn in molten ashes scattered in the heart Flames to dance in stark darkness, reminders all Consent shimmering flickers in the soul set apart They weigh heavy on a heart when gathered inside A bounty so deep with a desire to stay Whirling mists filled with salt, the heart tries to hide Memories of love's failure won't fade away The death of love on its journey, left traveling alone Wanton needs left bleeding from wounds applied Wander through dark on a road pained to the bone The entrance of loneliness has finally arrived Whether passion was spent, worthy of cost Or foolishness abounds fraught from deceit Emotion unveiled will always be lost Tears fall silent when they accept defeat 8/9/20
