Sunset Of My Heart


Let love's sunset into my heart
With sullen grey's tinged in pink
With last rays of warmth
Before there comes the chill

Let the last breath of fulfillness
Ease around my heart
Take away the sunny memories
Softly as the light fades away

Fading fast empty embraces
And kisses that have no taste
And softly whispered, 'I love you's'
Fall into the Atlantic sea

Come nightness surround now
My empty heart
Console my ache and care
So come now, sunset of my heart

    We all have been in this state of melancholy. Just do remember, that after sunset and nightness (as you so poignantly remark) , the sun comes out every morning and brings life and joy with it.
    Nice poem of melancholy. Thank you for sharing.

    Wish no more, sun to set in your heart
    Do wait sun to rise to replace inside
    So if it refuse to come, moon is up
    Why dont you feel the love that it tried to pour
    Just hit the arrow of heart and burn it to the darkness
    may loneliness will on fire, and claim back your desire_Soul (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
