Desolate Love - Poem by Jaime Montanez Salcedo

It began,
It began as a passion so intense, filled with emotions and dreams.
It began,
When their eyes met their gaze longing for a devoted love, it seems
The first to touch their hearts, flame that never yet had kindled before
To such folly,
Fervent desire and abandon of time that from all sorrows redeems,
When closed in their arms their silent vows of love for evermore
Echoed in their souls, like thunderstorm that in wildness finds
Raving resonance,
Impetuously galore,
Thus those passionate words that engraved were in their minds,
And their desire
With ecstasy blinds
Their souls that suspire
To that enthralling and unmitigated romance,
Embellishing the space and time,
While their souls ardently bind.
And they were only one
And they were only one,
They were one heart and mind!
They were one heart and mind!
They were one heart and mind!
And all began,
A love sublime,
The sweet possession of a hope that passion only can,
Aroused within them intense emotions that provoked
Untamed burning fire
That swiftly devoured
In emotional pyre
The essence of their lives,
And in the fervent moments of amorous desires
Love's fantasies revived
The ecstasies that inspire
Those endless sublime dreams
That forevermore would exist and thrive
In their souls and hearts with passion teem,
Stronger than life itself,
Stronger than time to last.
But then, the icy grasp of fate swiftly deprived
Of ecstasy their lives,
Thus light extinguished to blind,
Erasing for what they did strive,
Shrouded in the veil of death,
Who had seized her last breath,
Her last breath for ever, cruel fate!
And left him engulfed in grief
Inert, his self-inanimate,
His only hope, to sense in his soul the feelings of the past,
Alone, listening to his heart agonizing screams!
Seeming a ghost lost,
Seeming a ghost lost,
Seeming a ghost lost in a blinding mist, it seems
Seeking to live memories midst the dust of illusions and dreams,
