I wait in shadows
I watch you shine
Enjoying a bright light..
This empty heart sighs
In the midst of cold clover
Hungry eyes that are fed by your presence
And pushed aside..
To light a candle and watch it melt
To dark ash
My fault dims in silence
A heart that shows love..forgotten
A love that falls to a silent ear
and thus not heard..
A rose that is not nourished ..its tender petals fall
I search for words to feed you
As I reach out to blind eyes
Seeing now what could have been
As I watch you fall from the ladder
That climbed to my heart…
