gives a view
into my thoughts
what love was
or thought I did
such a long way off
has been tarnished
on the panes of glass
from the fire
that once burned
in my heart

Your words paint such a strong visual connecting to your emotions. Well written and powerful.
Thank you, Audrey! The words “yesterday’s ink” came to me and I couldn’t let them go until I wrote something. This is what came of that.
