Devoid Of Love - Poem by Jane Tomlin

the night falls in a heavy, suffocating cloak, lost are we.
the emotion for which you lust
flares once, then dies,
devoured by a velvet ebony nothingness.
all hope must surely perish.

your soul thrives no more.
how could you fail to believe?
angels surround us, crying,
sanctuary.

    the angels weep
    as they must for frail humans
    but this lovely poem
    calls to heaven
    with its beauty
    keep up the good work
