Poem – When Love Fails

when love fails, and 
utter silence prevails, 

so a swollen fear shrouds my nerves frail.

Why dreams of mine

on this Valentine eloped 

like morning dews.

Is my love really waned? 

will I not be blessed again

with that beguiled boon.
Ah! like the northern gale

that cherishes the southern springs; 

such are feelings been pushed 

into an unending frustration.

Ah! In her last embrace, i left 

my whole being: 

my sinking heart and fancies fair.
when love fails, 

it creates a world around

where rainbow drowns and darkness dawns, 

and the tears it brings are 

sweeter than smiles

and surely the music wiles…
