When Love Dies


The wind is no longer felt.
Flowers with the name of
rose is forgotten.
Bridge becomes frequent place
When love dies

Blues stung the soul.
When, how, why eludes
the quiet mind.
Friends becomes invisible,
When love dies

The stream of the eyes
gently flows to the pillars
of the mouth.
Oh that thou would stay!
When love dies.

Comfort encompass the
spirit but words find no
solace for the troubled inner
man
When love dies.

Loneliness beget a lost ant.
Loneliness beget unsheltered
bird.
Thoughts always at yonder,
When love dies

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
