Still Slipping Away - Poem by Heather Burns

Ships leaving the
port
destined for
foreign waters,
fearful to tread
unknown territory.

Confidence
slipping away.

A lovely blossom
in full bloom,
heat scorching
the petals
lets go of the
stem.

Gradually
slipping away.

A true love
once flourished,
in the passion
of the sun,
cools with the
evening breeze.

Emotions
slipping away.
