Tokens of Love #writebravely

Tokens of Love - Poetry - Kohl Eyed Me

there’s a certain sadness
in her eyes
that words cannot express

a love that’s lost
melted halfway
she is torn

the trust is broken
innocence betrayed
one huge mistake

the rush to label him as her love
to quench the thirst
of her soul

choices are everywhere
but she doesn’t think
and hides behind a drink

oh! this love so
perfect
how naive she was!

the tokens of love tormenting her
the treasures once cherished
now a burden

withered flowers 
the letters
and a ring

tears well up as memories darken
a love
that’s locked up deep within

being with
him
and not yet being

a stir
an ache
gasping for air

every day she walks alone
time might heal
is her only hope!
