I would live for another day


Gone waste the hour
under the clock tower
faded face forgotten name
promises made never came
the one showered abiding smiles
kept me walking empty miles
with no retrieval no salvaging wreck
but failed promises destined heartbreak
vows made yet not delivered
cast aside in time withered

upon their ruins where now I stand
holding death's icy hand
with no return to the trodden track
ahead the flight of no comeback

but I would have them not come on my way
would kiss your face live another day!

    A splendid expression of a failed meeting, but a resolve to live in the memory of that shadowy image! For the beauty of feelings and diction, I give you a 10 (Report) Reply
