Reborn - Poem by Jack Ashenden
My heart had withered away, pierced right through -
but you came along and pierced my mind too.
The cruellest ache of love has been reborn -
I feel guilt - my conscience is newly torn.
My spent heart has always been constant
other loves mere phantoms, fleeting distraction,
but until now my mind has lain dormant
absorbed in work, an escapist contraption
You have ignited the fire within my brain: -
The flame within you makes all others seem tame.
The connection between us makes all else seem lame,
and a revitalised blood runs through my veins.
Will we be together? Will I achieve that aim?
Whatever happens, I will never be the same.
