Love’s Demise


For all those couples out there who tried so hard to hold on… for when you both know you just  can’t make it work…

Love’s Demise

Sunlit darkness descended…
Casting shadows o’er hearts upended.
She smiled at him through her tears,
Turned and stumbled into the years.
He squared his shoulders and walked away…
In the end, they just couldn’t stay.

The eyes of heartache
Tell a story of heartbreak.
Falling tears, hot like blood…
Trailing down like a blood rain flood…
As hope is lost, with heaving sighs…
Two hearts convulsed in Love’s demise.
