Ophelia

Days began and nights would turn

Through endless cycles of despair

The living dream, compelled by hope,

Carried away and lost in ethereal life. 

 

Shattered byways that led to want and love

Broken by lies and embittered deceit

With the emptiness rotting inside. 

 

Frustration abounded and sank In my heart

Fulfilment seemed to slip through fingers

As the quicksand of denial, swallowed my soul,

Leaving nothing but ruin and resentment

 

But a vision appeared;  an intangible soul

Glistening in from the darkness. 

A scent of purity, a touch of truth

That could lift me from petulant disease. 

 

The strength of you followed, with a passion ignored, igniting a burning desire, left forbidden and closed in my dreams. 

A sparkle of life, endured by hope, captured  a heart that was lonely and discarded. 

 

A spirit renewed by beauty unseen,  revelled in desire, acceptance and love

Life reaffirmed

 

Soul to heart

Heart to soul

The touch of your hand

The warmth of your smile,  

remains after Ophelias rage
