Embers (Poetry)

IPhone Pix1 2539 - Copy


By Veronica Nkwocha

by a yearning
only you can heal
by a hollow
only you can fill
Every hour
my heart whispers
your name

in bonds
made of the tendrils
reaching for you
The clasp elusive
in knots
into my every form

I walk
With a smile on my face
Wave a hello
to the gorgeous sunrise
I sing
A happy song
As I face the world
and wipe the tears

My heart
melting wax
The candle lit up
with the light
of a craving
So strong
So endless
Etched with a seal
of my love for you
