Thorns of Time (part II) by Maria Fokas
I watched your words turn into stone.
– First you left;
And then, I said goodbye –
One by one, tomorrows disappear, like candles end.
– Up in the sky, the clouds manifest in mystery,
First love recalls the fear of oneness, inevitable paths to claim
Damn those walls, like mountaintops that never end.
– Losing leaves a painful sting behind,
A hovering shadow that clings on till we say farewell –
We write, and write, and then forget the reasons why.
– A promise broken or misplaced, and then fades away,
The key is lost, and then is found, with no regrets to mend –
And still, I’m grateful for the things you gave me.
– For the moon, for the stars; for the rest of time,
And for the scent of love; you kissed my lips with freedom –
First, you left;
-Then, I let the candles burn till the night was gone.
That was the end; nothing was wrong –
