Winter In My Heart - Poem by diana rose tolentino

The breeze that blows is the winter wind,
Freezing blood throughout my veins.
Instead of the warmth of your embrace,
I felt the shiver from your cold gaze.

As I look up at the midnight sky,
There is no single star that can be found.
As if they are hiding from my own sight
Or showing compassion for my broken heart

I felt the tears streaming from my eyes,
Perplexed by the emotions I kept inside.
Crying for the love I know I’ve found
The same love that’s gone before it began.

    a poem drenched in wistful separation....
    a painful realization of the harsh realities of unmet love

    The same love that''s gone before it began.

    I like this line it pictures a love started but soon gone immediately!
