“ Withering”


An example

This will be

Of a flight

So real upon the beauty of my heart

Upon the vision of my mind

As the loneliness of my heart

Withers away

Love was lost

But it was found… far away

Beneath the stormy skies

Where love and joy

Laughing out to the sky

To awake a flame of fire

Dancing upon a shooting star

Deep within my mind

Moon so bright

Against a starlit night

Ever more

Was this lover’s flight

To the tally of my soul

And the beauty of it all

Mocks upon the corridor of my heart

All but silent it came to me

As the loneliness of my heart

Withers away

Love was lost

But was found

Very far away!!
