Fall and my Heart

fall 22The crunch of leaves beneath my feet

Sends me reminders, gentle but discreet

Of how my heart was like the leaves of autumn

Fallen and  crushed, as it hit rock bottom..

When you walked away, without explanation

On a crisp fall day, following our altercation

Before I could regret and apologize

Before dewy sadness could moisten my eyes

You were gone, I was left to shudder

In the cool autumn air, I was left with no rudder

Like a bright yellow leaf separated from its tree

Benumbed, I just wandered aimlessly

As days went by, my hopes were stripped bare

Like the trees lost their leaves, for winter to prepare

When the harsh winter declared its presence

My frost-crusted heart tried to ignore your absence

Wasn’t until spring that my emotions could thaw

I was still hurting, my wounds were still raw

I let go of anger, gathered strength to apologize

As I did so, I searched for the same in your eyes

Though we said sorry, we never got back together

Spring came, and I was lonely in perfect weather..

**

Now I remember every fall, how we fell apart

Like leaves on the ground, crushed was my heart

It had bled, in fiery red shades of autumn

A longing for lost love fills me each fall season.
