lips unkissed

lips unkissed

.

Black sands of time rain upon me
Entombing me in a powdered cloud
Each grain marks the sad moments
Where we’re denied our love avowed

Another hour that I didn’t hold you
Sixty minutes I wish to never repeat
For if I could I’d renounce paradise
Just so I could die at your pretty feet

Another day passes without your love
And here I am longing to belong to you
As my cold calendar continues taunting
Asking me the date I only wish I knew

There is no romance in lonely sunsets
Nor in thinking of the beloved you miss
As I watch the sun slowly descending
Your trembling lips remain unkissed

  1. Beautifully penned! You captured it all. Really loved the last stanza — “There is no romance in lonely sunsets
    Nor in thinking of the beloved you miss
    As I watch the sun slowly descending
    Your trembling lips remain unkissed
