Battle Of Heartbreak

written by: JayM

 

And when I was awoken,
It was to a different face,
From the night before,
A passage of time,
A night of revelations,
Such a change,
Of heart,
Reflected upon from your very soul.

The temple may have crumbled,
Nay, but passions may never seem woe befallen.

For such an eye,
Has yet to see
embers dying,
Affections may have devolved, once,
Now,
Affectations unmasked reveal bare faces within,
Warmth bereft.

Girded;
Moulded to lay the kiln,
Ignite flames,
Lays the dust of shattered bricks,
Embraced in piles of worth.

For such an eye,
Has yet to see
embers dying,
Aglow of
untainted words
in bloom,
Smouldering,
Among cracks within walls of thought,
And rocky shores,
Watered by the tears of the sun,
Pools of nectar within...
