Where once love lived, there is only disdain…

Why? How did you change so my love?

Cruel casual words

Flung across the room with pantherine savagery,

Strike my hurt benumbed soul with their ripping talons.

Treasured love secrets dismissed
With callous indifference,
The secret code of two hearts used
Trampled by the crass

Sweet precious moments, denied by a swift backhand across my heart

How could you?

Where did you go, to change so utterly?

Once a warm and loving man.

You are now a stranger robed in icy armour,

Lies spilling easily, scarlet with my blood

We sit silently...

Two civil strangers

In a cold empty room

Once graced with love

Two small tears

escape my aching heart

As I gaze with love and loss

At once was……

My body empty of your presence..

"Treasured love secrets dismissed
With callous indifference..."
A beautiful veil of sadness that strikes straight to one's heart like a sharp dagger - to the hilt.

How, indeed, does love ever die if it once lived? Much sorrow felt. ~Joseph

This poem is both painful to read yet beautiful at the same time. You're quite gifted at expressing human emotion.
