Bathing in your tender words,
bubbles sweet with your essence.
Rub my skin with oils of faith,
soon were evanescence.

Blanket of soft enchantment,
woven threads of promised love.
Colored with ardent passion,
disappeared to soon thereof .

Slipping in a bed of devotion,
secure pillow of fidelity.
Satin sheets of deep desire,
Gifted only amity.

A very creative way of expressing your broken heart by a word picture of taking a bath and going to bed. Nice quatrains with lines 2 and 4 rhyming.

Melody:  Often friendship is enough... sometimes it isn't -- especially when beds of devotion, pillows of fidelity and satin sheets of desire -- all impassioned pleas for unconditional love -- have been sacrificed on the alter of a friendship.  Your imagery is beautiful in its sadness... but seems to neglect the heart's response to being broken...  where are the tears?  Does that come next?    Tristan

To me this reads like lovers that are now only friends. "Rub my skin with oils of faith"...great line! Although this is a "broken hearts" post I feel it is a bittersweet ending...for these lines still hold a spark of love within them. Just what I feel Melody...lovely poem.

some truely wonderful lines and the overall idea is brilliant but the thought process is a little disjointed. esp the last stanza which speaks of devotion and fidelity (products of a lasting relationship) desire (transient) and finally that only friendship is offered? ..."rub my skin with oils of faith" though. that is a sublime line. has potential for greatness
