Love tends to thrive upon devotion, trust, and friendship. If nurtured and pampered in the proper way, then it will grow for many a spring. Its roots secure itself around the heart, thus two vines intertwine and become as one.

Sometimes, love's thirst can not be quenched; it becomes weak, lifeless, and fragile. As it grows astray, its thorns strengthen and cut deep into the soul. The delicate flower that once blossomed, loses its everlasting beauty; wilts, dies, and becomes lovelorn.

As time passes by, a new bud emerges, and as the new bud unfolds to reveal its beauty, it takes with her the mourning dew.

Thank you, for taking the time to read some of my poetry. I used to write poetry years ago, but haven't written much since. Thanks, for your votes, too.
