At first sight

Love, born once,

dies a thousand deaths.

Eyes meet,

hearts dance,

flesh burns.

Like chocolate tasted,

love quickly fades

into but a memory.

Eyes tear,

hearts pain,

flesh longs.

Each pillowed night

cries in darkness,

lies in bitter solitude,

only to repeat

till the last drawn breath

gives blessed relief…

  3. I truly believe it is the more “personal” writings that stand out the most!! Truly haunting and tragic! Sorry that it is personal for you!

    Like you, I know the power this kind of poetry has. And I have to say that this one too is “kind of mesmerizing”. Excellent job
