to love this way

Your soft heart took such a crushing blow

when she let you know

the door had closed upon her own.

There you stood

upon dry land

as the ocean of her loving promise

receded

never to return

Nights became a crushing kind of agony

full of those memories

of all the times you saw her smile

as your kisses

covered her flesh

lighting up the stars

that shone

in her eyes

Now

at times

the darkness

seems completely unbearable

as you wrap the covers

around

no one to witness your tears

but the angels

No one to soothe

your fears

that you may never ever find the heart

to love this way

again.
