Treasure these moments

Treasure these moments

A Poem by EmpressPoetess

Reflections of a great love that was meant to last forever, but ended due to drugs):


 We watched the fire transcend the night

We were lost in moments of shredded time

while shadows dance urgently above us

teasing, taunting, and laughing at our plight


Impatiently they wait for this moment to end

Where has all the damning music gone?

How are my tortured thoughts to dance now?

It gave me a place where my heart could pretend


Those fractured memories swam vaguely

Shimmering behind our intoxicated tears

Tears that spilled out in moments of anger

When fits of selfish demands filled us miserably



 let me swim in your emerald depths tonight

lose your fingers within the warmth of my hair

please, kiss the salty tear stains from my cheeks

stop the flowing of their lonesome plight


let me whisper my frantic woes against your chest

give me these moments to pour out my heart to you

let’s remember when love was young and new

let these feelings linger within us, please, let them rest.

Oh, what a sadness sweeps over the heart... that love so beautiful and pure could be taken away by such a painful horror. Your every word flows effortlessly...
