Like all things in life, love too has its seasonal change.

Hurt hurls its winds of woes
 
as sorrow curls its snowy toes.
 
Love follows the past’s shadows
 
sinking in life’s muddy morrows.
 
Time burrows with horrors
 
laying dormant behind icy mirrors.
 
Loneliness echoes from regret’s bellows.
 
rustling memories’ leaves tumbling like dominoes.
 
Joy stands crossing its elbows
 
as worry rubs its hands to fiery egos.
 
Yearning sobs burying its head in pillows
 
Distance grows drinking circumstance’s marrows.
 
Time laughs as apology comes and goes
 
trying to have tea with logic’s plea at the gallows.
 
Misunderstanding trips and dies of overdose
 
leaving care’s bodies to freeze on sorrow’s snows.
 
Life is a cycle with love for a rose
 
A rose that bears sorrows in pairs
 
holding hope’s plumes as it blooms
 
only to die in doubt’s shadowy sky
 
with every try seeming like a lie
 
tearing a heart apart with mistrust’s dart.
 
Life is a lonely planet when we don’t plan it.
 
Words whip hearts that were once lit
 
with love for spring and joys that bring
 
summer’s fruits as memories that fit
 
stories with lines that left souls to mint
 
autumn’s silence as a stint
 
of love’s winter making its footprint.
