Hope Springs

Night is darker in the new year
dark as lonely dreams
as bitter as the tear
the lemon weeps
when crushed against
a hard place, or a grater
can I be serious a moment?
may I tell you what I feel?
can you hear my sigh,
my desolation, can you feel
the throb, the pulse of hope
my battered heart gives
when the messge sign
is flashing red, when jasmine
drowns my senses with the night,
dark chocolate seduction that calls
me into wakefulness as siren stars
weave their slow dance to sweet
celestial music mere mortals
cannot hear.

Great truth spoken here, a broken heart could be healed by taking care of those in need. Thank you!
This piece of work is true, meaningful, believable, full of imagery, very creative indeed. Each line runs smoothly and flawless. Using simple words letting simple reader to understand what the author meant. I'll add to that: the author is talented. Well done!
Very nice and lovely poem.10 with love.
but when we love no more and heart's closed its door, We breath without a life so true... this is so good because it is so true and not everyone knows this.. its something to pass on to our kids... good job. Becca
