Haunted Heart

Yearning
fingers reaching
bells chiming
message arrives
breath catches
is it true
does he want you?
Hide shy smiles
eyes bright with laughter
warmth arising
arms pulling you close
if this is a dream
please do not let it end.
Awakening
alone once more
figment of your imagination
a tale woven
to keep the darkness at bay.
Plod through each day
grey
unappealing
alone
heartache ever constant
is there no cure?
Drizzling rain
stand
getting soaked through
tears cannot be seen
mixed with the pouring from the sky.
Love songs on repeat
endless declarations
places to be
places to go
places to meet your lover at will.
Silence lingers long on the tongue
whispers heard 
made to come undone
wrapped within scarlet ribbons
loveless
lifeless
alone……
