There Once Was…Love

Waking to the brightness of his intoxicating smile

warmed by his morning ardent embrace

filling the once empty uncherished void

presently crumbling back to decayed loneliness


The amorous dream that once was has disintegrated

no longer entwined within his hand-stitched heart

desolation has broken its way through

exposing my defeat anguish and dejection that remain


There will be a time to break free

hoping a lifetime of despair won’t be for me

removing my soulless flesh from my empty bed

wiping the last tears that’ve fallen from my droopy eyes


Betraying my affection for another

a minimal possibility considering my icy façade

the stereotype of a woman scorned will not become me

but looking pass the array of boys to find a man is the challenge inevitably
