Frozen Tears


The days are forgotten
The nights are longer
When thoughts are the enemy
and memories are no longer welcome
There is no reason for the broken heart to continue
beating like everything was just as it should be

Frozen tears, striken heart, weary mind
Left in the lost land, like a single white rose
withering in the wild

So lost, so frigid, so missing you
Frozen tears, cast in the mould of my broken heart
Like the thousand, hundred minutes of thoughts
I used to bestow on you, stuck in a time frame, running, turning
over and over and over again

Frozen tears, like you would know
what it is that freeze a tear, and lock the pain within, forever
It is love found, and lost -
It is you.

    A heartfelt love poem tha captures the pain of losing someone so well here. It had a nice naturel flow to it too. Thanks for sharing.
    In the last verse the 2nd line you have 'feeze'-it should be 'freeze' ok
