Life, Writing

Under The Shadows

Your lips, so full and true.

The taste of your love came

With ease, with tenderness.


Winds of time pulled us apart.

The taste of love now the taste

Of darkness, emptiness.


I sit here, waiting. The winds

Have calmed, I see you in the distance.

Your lips, so full of lies.


The fire, once burning the light of love

Within our hearts, now turned

To embers, soaring, calmly, gently

Under the shadows of what once was.
