A search for the perfect love
a reminder of beliefs set in mind
like bards, singing songs
of lonely nights and frozen hearts
a loveless relationship
destined to pass...
Senses dormant while eyes
rove roads that may show
a significant taste of endearments
tempting to unknown trails
...naught satiated like the winds
in deserts of parched throats.
Nudges from the past
toiling to survive today
a passing of grief over yester-years
of what might have been -
rants and raves
silently screaming in the soul.
A mystic dance of light and shade
embers burn to warm
while fingers clam and joints pain;
mirages of hopes and dreams
keeping me alive.
