The Face of Passion #poetry #photography

The Road Ahead

Passion led

 man’s life to spill

His love

on Calvary’s hill

Passion fueled

an angry mob

insults and rocks

cruelly lobbed

Passion moved

the earth to shake

 sky grew dark

bonds would break

Passion cried

 in a tomb he lay

night filled hearts

but we await the day

This poem is in response to the prompt at Verse First/Poet’s United. The prompt is “Passion.” I don’t often write directly on my blog of my faith, but it is what holds me up on good days and on the very worst.

Epitaph of Love #poetry #flashfiction

One

 last

silent tear falls

“WHY?”

whispered echoes in the trees

Sculpted beauty

 stone cold

veined marble

“here lies…

…cherished by many

…embraced by few …

thought of passionately  by one”

*

you held me

 too soon released

love  longed for

 world  dreamt of

gone the moment

 darkness slipped

her icy fingers

 wiped free of guilt

dagger’s voice

 entombed

This fiction evolved from a heartfelt epitaph of lost love to an epitaph of one wronged in love. I hope you enjoyed the ending…
