Of Hearts And Love - Poem by nikki hays

Ripped and shattered pushed aside
Memories from another time
Drained of all emotions lie
This is you and this is I

Lies from the past they haunt me still
Faded pictures on windowsills
Cobwebs adorn the walls and fall
Into the darkness of it all

I touched you once when I felt your kiss
I cannot hide the pain of this
Final thoughts run through my mind
Darkness has come and now I’m blind

Feeling in the night for you
For those words you swore were true
Tender love and warm embrace
Have gone now leaving empty space

I kiss the air and picture then
I chose you from other men
Tall and handsome filled with pride
King of kings to you I’m tied

Distant dreams and nightmares come
Now I scream out loud 'I’m done'
I give up you win the war
Of hearts and love I know no more
