When storms like fire
Engulf the soul

Suffocating one’s very last gasping breath

Searing away and stripping
Layer by aching layer
To the core

Of what was once

A compassionate heart
Alive, loving, breathing and feeling

Is now left in tattered ruins

Like a discarded forgotten remnant

Of the once beautifully cherished love

Floating ashes, dispersed into a sea of solitude

To be forever lost into oblivion

On the dunes of arid desert sands

Where nights are cold and lonely

The moon haunts transient shadows

And in the recesses of one’s mind

Starlit nights are just a faded memory!

A very interesting and well written piece...there are emotions of life wrapped within the reflection of times where the heart and soul are engulfed into a disaproving or unfortunate view of life...leaving only the reality of a memory...

nice work...

This is truly one of the most moving writes that you have done and I enjoyed it tremendously.

Sadly, you write of a very common theme in this world/life, Elga. I find your poem and what you express within it very compelling and I can totally relate to the sentiments that you share via your verses. It is very nice to read you again. Love and best wishes to you,
