Wake Up My Heart

In the winter of my mind
my heart remains frozen,
memories sweet still unwind
love long forgotten.

Oh, how I remember
such romantic sunsets,
when we held the moon
in enchanting embrace!

Something did sway 
as love soon blossomed,
and left my ambiance
recklessly abandoned.

Flowers in my heart
will curl up and die,
if not awakened soon
by a vibrant butterfly.

Don't come knocking
if you don't wish to stay,
don't hurt my feelings,
mean what you say.

Bring back the persona
that once gleamed,
burning fire in your flame
that has since dimmed.

I see your silhouette
longing for passion,
I'll open the door
if I see true compassion.

Arrive at the sundown
to whisper in my air,
like the nocturnal moth
circles the moonflower.

You'll need to reignite
visions that fell apart,
to thaw frozen feelings
and wake up my heart.

    For love to work it takes two to commit. If left to its own devices, love can wither away. You express yourself very well in this poem, Vijay. The imagery is very apt! Enjoy your time away from the soup - I look forward to your return!

    Though this could endure betterment, the poem is not bad from the point of poetic expression and poetic lines. I enjoyed the middle part best. Keep it up! Luis Estable
