Email Poem | Today's Poetry

Was not long ago a better day
A better state of mind I'd say
As sit we do to reminisce
What use to be, of greatly missed

By fireside we camp alone
A place where things are mine atoned
Along with heart close turned to stone

Another night where stars now gaze
Upon my soul, a soul who stayed
Far too long, farther yet still
Since last we shared such bitter pill

We stoke fire to bring back warm
To cold the night and too heart storms
This winter plays it's part as well
Of what was once of kiss not tell

Oh how we grasp at straws, mirage
Of hope but dreams are still garaged
Like relic held unseen by eyes
This thing called love that knocks with sighs

The door to dreams once opened here
Here where once did come, briefly appeared
Leaving it's mark upon soul seared
A soul fulfilled more ghost now speared

The fire flicks it's amber flames
As if speaking to not the same
Stay close and stoke to keep inside
What is but yours, that keeps alive
A man that tries but once again
To help a heart yet still to mend
Other than yours, to comprehend
