Heartbreak

Like a moth to a flame, She threw herself at heartbreak, She never lost hope, And kept on trying again and again. But the world thought her foolish, As she never seemed to learn, That how could she save him, Who was convinced, That he should burn.

Long time ago

Winds whispered into my ears, The tales of time long ago, Reminding me of things, That were no more. I thought That I could leave it all behind, Nonchalantly surging ahead. But those tiny wisps, They kept floating back. I see my life barren, The sturdy trees of yonder, That blossomed with love to the… Continue reading Long time ago
