Unfinished Love

Updated on May 17, 2012

The flame of unfinished love burns and flickers

Fueled by each passing moment of life

Diminishing the heart in density

Like hot, red coals slowly turning black

Given enough time...

Memories feed the fire of past desire

Jealousy felt, serves to feed regret

Tainting the white wings of love

Which once took free flight

But now clipped and left for dead

On a scratchy, sandy, beach

Where they await the evening tide

In silence but for lapping waves

Stealthily returning them to the ocean deep.
