Thorns of Time (Part II)

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 –
