Decomposition of Love
Putrid smell of decomposing passion
Leading to grotesque skeletal remains,
scarred by demoralizing words ,
cleave easily through tender flesh .

Corpse of prevailing existence,
meaningless emotions dwell , miscarried..
Impoverished house of lost enchantment,
liberated of a adherent heart
Author's Notes:

Not reality but simply my version of a dying love/ posted with permission of co writer.

Thanks Rparch for help with the title change:]

Hey Melody,

You have clearly a magical touch in creating these beautiful verses!  When love is gone, how cold doth the world then seem, in what state are we left...  All those sad feelings were perfectly expressed here!  Read it twice, silently and out loud.

Greetings: Peter

I'm perplexed about how a love so vexing could have been that great in the beginning.  Wow!  That is really dark -- someone has been really hurt when something beautiful can turn into this. Its almost like the distinction between life and death -- yet life and death can both be beautiful in their own way and in their own time. In this perception, the distinctions seems to be between love and evil or love and horror -- completely different sets of distinctions. It just causes me to pause and wonder if it was "love" in the first place. Wonderful imagery and descriptive language that can enhance the darkness and pain.  Tristan

Vivid and accurate. I question the title though the gradual decomposition in the poem does not support the image of something that is shattered. Just a thought. Keep up the good work!

When love starts to die does do something to the heart and soul that makes these words seem more reality than mere writing.

This is powerfully stated!

very powerful - disturbing in its own way - glad it's not reality! even though this is a departure from your normal color-rich work, it maintains the quality of the richly constructed visuals - great job stretching yourself
