Adrianne Quinlan


Suddenly


When love suddenly dies
Without reason or call,
Signs of silence break ties
Breaths no longer rise,
But forever fall.

And love,
Unrequited and forbidden,
Fades on one face,
Yet, on the other,
Free-flowing but hidden,
Flourishes without trace.

Carried on waves of radiant light,
Love grows.
Till by sheer will
Her life's force ignites,
Glows the brightest white,
Blows, and takes flight

    A very soul stirring poem. The real beauty is that though one may break your heart, another can come along and help to make it whole again! : -) (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem with depth and tenderness. If a person is loving by nature love would be reignited in heart against all odds. (Report) Reply

    A truly enjoyed write Adrienne. When love dies feels
    like the whole world comes crashing down. On the
    other hand when it grows it flourishes and shines
    bright as the noon day. A thoughtful write. (Report) Reply
