For the first time ever, I'm taking part in the A-Z Challenge and NaPoWriMo, where I'll have to write a poem a day for the whole of April (26 in total for A-Z). I'm combining both challenges. This is my entry for Day 17 letter "Q" (Day 19 NaPoWriMo).
As I sink deeper into this infinite quicksand, I will tearfully remember the morsel of love you ate from my hands when your heart was beautiful and pure.
Lady Flower, how can you lead me to this quicksand of sorrow when there is no flame upon the scented candle at the altar we once worshipped?
How am I to speak the vocabulary of love today when I can only write wordless poems in the lexicon of my dreams?
Sadly, the love I implanted in your heart refused to be nurtured and instead becomes the sword now pushing me into this quicksand of betrayal.
Roaming our garden in my memory only cuts me deeper in the heart knowing the flowers we once shared have also turned away with embarrassment.
Please remove my weary reflection from your eyes so I may become blind toward what is beautiful.
Falling into the abyss created by your selfish desires, my heart is ready to traverse the emotions of life into the arms of a merciless death.
