Renewing Old Ties - Poem by Heather Burns

Just as our relationship
was beginning to blossom

you turned, viewing in
another direction

after a space of absence
returning to renew old ties

but the season has changed
those ties have been broken.

    Life can be so perfect than in an instant pure pain. Some of these ties have kept us safe but were we happy? Thank you for your words Heather (Report) Reply

    It is unfortunate! The snapped ties can at any time be linked together! Curt and sweet! (Report) Reply
