Against the wind a breaking heart
mourns a love lost from the start.

Memories come and go,
a mindful play of what can not grow.

The thorns of lust and redemption,
haunt a soul full of passing tention.

A reflection seen through glassy eyes
that hold an hourglass up to size.

The time is passing so very slow
if only the tears would humbly go.

They never seem to end these days
for the broken heart that never strays.

Against the wind a breaking heart
mourns a love lost from the start.

"Against the wind a breaking heart mourns a love lost from the start."—this is deeply sad in that it sees the outcome at the start line. Good write! Bravo!!

Thank you. You got my vision exactly :)

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
