Laid to Rest


"Come back to bed," she whispered
Softly to the wind,
"My heart grows cool without you,
As the light between us dims.”

“Come soon, my love, remember
How I burned for your caress?
Before the flames expire
And our passion’s repossessed.”

“The time grows late,” she pleaded
Though resigned now to the chill,
She sunk beneath the covers
Where he found her cold and still.

It's interesting ... after reading your poem my eyes were drawn to your "Out of Balance" post. Your Magpie became even more meaningful.

I married one of those!
Seriously though, this is a beautiful idea in an interesting poem.
'Before the flames expire
And our passion’s repossessed.'
