Love Cryogenic

Love Cryogenic

A Poem by Michael G. Smith
"

falling out of love

"

 

Cold November wind, it cries

Against hearts cellophane and souls oblique

It pines for the once “you and I”

Now, covered beneath… little white lies

And, living out of sync

 

Love cryogenic camouflages

Amidst the twilight falling flakes

Within, it continues deeper into night

Outward echoes through the trees, whisper “why”

Are we giving in, instead of fighting for our fate

 

Moonwise, rising higher kissing skies

Gifting, answers as spilt pennies in its light

Rushing to try and gather them up

But like slipping sands give way

To blizzard winds awry

 

But in the end, it’s the warmth

The one left ember

Heart of hearth

Which keeps love, alive

Burning and thawing

More wayward deeds and thoughts

 

“Wills” which endure to go on

Keep love from, obscurity and fear

And merely becoming, a scripted word

''But in the end, it’s the warmth'' - i fell for this line.This is wonderful Michael. I was listening to Max Richter - ''On the Nature of Daylight'' while reading this. Very beautiful combination. A perfect addition for my library.

I liked the thoughts and the story told in the poetry.
"But in the end, it’s the warmth
The one left ember
Heart of hearth
Which keeps love, alive
Burning and thawing
More wayward deeds and thoughts "
