Lost in the gloom
unable to rekindle faded love.
hurled like weapons ages ago
hang precariously just overhead,
both of you ready to pull the pins.
What fallen angel with sinister laugh
has twisted your desire into rage?
tears drip from a heart that longs to feel love again.
it’s the only way forward.
Drop the ax and embrace the enemy.
Search the eyes,
find the revenant there.
Hold fast with fingers entwined.
Stand and face the demon together
Love conquers all.
