Dawn's songbirds held close her beating heart Whilst morning dew fell soft from lilac lashes Yesterday melts away through iced fingertips Pretty petals gently fade forlorn From crimson wine to crumpled blush Withering solemn from winter's chill Wrapped tight in the comfort of forgotten lyrics Surrendering to the sodden earth The final resting place for tattered heart and soul Bringing her lonesome spirit peace Shadowed quietly by the silhouette of day's light ~ Josie A Kerr ~
When spring came, the tulips bloomed. And so did our love. The jasmines danced aromatizing the earth. And I discovered your love for darkness when I found you admiring the starless nights.
You said the mirth will succumb to the scorching heat when summer bares it's crown. But that's the thing about darkness. It grows darker. It is permanent. And permanence nowadays, is something worth falling for.
And when autumn arrived... I found myself fretting over the emptiness creeping between us slowly. But you turned to the falling leaves, and told me that some falls happen to make the world more beautiful.
But now I halt. For you're gone and I'm scared. For it's close. For it's here. With a question that remains unuttered, Will I still be in love? Will I survive the winter?
