Arise - Poem by Leah Wells

A love has faded,
A fire has burned black.
A feeling so passionate,
The heart-ache of disgusting love is what I now lack.

I don't plan on keeping my deepest desire,
Of being so in love with your eyes.
One day, as my life sinks far below death & dispair,
The light of the sun & sound of children's laughter will all arise.

Tears flow freely creating an ocean of pain,
It burns; the scolding pain engraved so deeply into my soul.
The chance that I had with my once upon a time Prince Charming,
Is one that I discarded and shall never have the chance to re-console.

I'm so sorry, my angel, my dove, my one true love,
You've made a silvery blanket make home in my eyes.
As much as I smile weakly, give you those three, untrue words,
I shall never get the strength, to once again, arise.
