poetry

love of an aged heart…

the years are gaining
and i’m losing
within the distances
found within
my crumbling temple
where my heart is aging
beyond the days
of simple lust
for the love
that i have carried
and for the love
that i hope one day
carries me
beyond my days

One thought on “love of an aged heart…

  1. Such heart-breaking words! As we get older, we hunger for a love that transcends our baser desires. Sometimes, that love proves to be tragically elusive. To me, that love can be romantic in nature, or the quest for spiritual truth. You very eloquently encapsulated this search.
