Poem – “Needle of Love” – Modern Romanticism – 12/16/2021

Withdraw
Your eyes from embrace and trace,
Waking to the stillness
Of a form,
Frozen in mouth upon a sigh,
Stiff in fingers upon the cry
While the grasp was coming dry.
A pull-back,
A fallen curve
To your body that landed my collision,
While worth was never served.

Winter reversed itself,
For Autumn to decorate our feet
In summer's decaying petals.
Losing each tear,
Facing every fear,
Weeping throughout the years.

We walk
Onto modern times,
Digging our stains into flesh,
Embracing every death,
Failing every breath.

Withdraw
The clouds,
And cut your sceneries into snowflakes.
Follow the ash,
Wade your eyes in the bleeding snow,
Melting into one distant flash,
Facing the void,
Shedding the leaves.

We left our summer behind,
Waving skeletal hands.
