Old Love

Hearts wail, Loins fail 

​Songs previously sonorous reduced to faint whispers

Distance found root in the space between them 

What was moist now needed lubrication 

Passion whittled to the perfunctory… 

Tongues tied, Love died

    Time really doesn’t help, does it?
    Everything dies in time…
    Plants. Animals. Friendship.

      They say Time as we know it is just something that consoles our wait. From when we are born to when we die, time helps us pass the wait. We are all just killing time πŸ™‚

        Aren’t you just a natural poet sir? I look forward to reading your work…

    I’m beginning to think your poetry might be the kind I prefer. Beautiful, straightforward and non complicated. You should come to ALS and read

      Thank you Geeky. ALS is a target, as soon as I learn my lines! I don’t memorize my lyrics 😱
