A Poem For The Seeker

Rating: 5.0

Will you find that which you seek
Within the ruins of fire grown weak?
Ashes blown from hearth to heart
Choke life's breath, deaden its art.

Unburied in night, dreams do seek
One whose desire will not grow weak.
Enduring love envelops the heart,
While trust and faith rekindle life's art.

So true, there is always hope after some pain in failure, there is always love after being broken hearted... for life must goes on despite varied circumstances! Thanks for sharing. A 10.

Will you find that which you seek Withing the ruins of fire grown weak? Such a sad quest, the fire growing cold, only a spark left, flame dying....but there is hope, and you show it in the ending of this poem.

You have chosen a perfect metaphor for describing a 'stale' relationship 'fire grown weak' - fire equating with passion, energy and excitement. Your second stanza's solution - the dream is very romantic, but perhaps it just takes the right sort of fan to rekindle the old flame before it goes out completely. A personal and profound poem. love, Allie xxxx
