Late Harvest

 

 

Late Harvest

~

 

My love ripened too late in season to harvest

 

pendent on the bared branches,

 

easy picking but forgotten ‘til winter.

 

Alone it stays in the orchard farthest

 

waiting for the frozen splinter

 

to gash it’s heart and bleed desires

 

into the coldness of the ground.

 

And cold will fade into dreams

 

of lips tasting it’s sweetness now bound

 

to rot alone too late for harvest. 

~

    My hope for you… is that love blossoms accordingly on the cusp of Spring, and forever thereafter. 🌻🌞

    Oh damn Som. The feel of this one leaves me lamentingly warm within a vacant draft simultaneously.

      I sometimes play in sadness, all the same as you probably do. Hope you are able to let it go, eventually princess.
