There Are No Flowers

…forever faded from the light

The clouds come and go
casting shadows in their wake
there are no flowers

forever faded from the light
their perfume still lingers
their absence gnaws at me

and harkens unto dreams
that once blossomed
in the darkness

like those lost flowers
taken by the ruthless wind
petal by lovely petal

like this barren field
I am filled with emptiness
I sense your unquiet soul

my heart trembles
and the leaves ripple above me
yet the night is still

your restless heart
touches mine
fleeing into the distance
