Season of Heartaches

Posted: October 22, 2013 in Uncategorized



smiles turn brittle

and our flowering love wilts

When our flaming sun loses heat

And a thousand gardens turn into cemeteries

When the Idea of us blossoming

      becomes a dry memory

crushed by

a fading infatuation.

I will endure the cold

and hold you again in

the spring

    the brittle sun up front is very cool…
