There’s No You! #Valentinesday #love #heart #poetry #roses

sun-kissed were those days

and nights

dreams could not compete

with you

regrets fan like

War and Peace

you left

I became a fool

my favorite glance

into the past

your eyes

they sparkle blue

the knowing smile

upon your lips

I’m lost

what should I do?

I held one futile

aching heart

torn

ripped beyond repair

revive, cannot

the petals dead

red roses

that lie bare

misunderstood

I always was

I’m here

but you aren’t there

Dead on Delivery #poetry #photography #poetsunited

roses

petals pulled away my heart

spikes picketed into my soul

waters that once so freely flowed

dried up and blew away

***

petals pulled away my heart

love it seemed between us too

wrapped up with a bow

came dead upon delivery

**

petals pulled away my heart

words inscribed in red

buried long ago

none can unearth love’s end

**

Petals pulled away my heart

locked up by your deception

one of us must go

I’ll gladly take the keys

the key

I love the visual of locks and keys especially the old fashioned kind. Today’s poem was inspired by Kim at Poet’s United / Verse First the prompt – “Lock”
