Visitor of love's demise

You appear within my dreams
to haunt me
come to visit in the night
mock my love
which I offered openly
spat upon
and shoved out of sight

Visitor of love's demise
breathe no words
of your mockery
touch not
my outstretched hands
they are not
reaching for you, they but are
pleading for me

There was time time
I offered you
of these hours now mine alone
unwanted... rejected
I keep it hidden behind the door
bolted against you
not to be opened anymore

Your words if asked now
would fall on
ears deafened to your call
eyes of mine
would never see you
sightless they
are blind to you now
remembering...
not at all
