When Love Lies. ~ Edith Lazenby {Poem}

open hearts still get broken

Angst stabs my heart.

Do dreams come true?

Or do they turn brittle

And break, frozen

By lack of faith

When hope hikes

Down a trail

And digs a grave

To bury need and desire,

As a love known

Becomes a pyre

Where ashes

Dust a circle

Into that cycle

When life gives

As much as it takes,

And love lies,

A fading memory

Dancing in the shadow of flames.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
