Mortal Arms Embrace

by Aureus Argentum   Apr 12, 2010


Death has acquired a place here,
the roses have all turned to dirt,
the one thing abundant is fear,
making us weep when we hurt.

The darkness has risen before us,
embrace can't be found through love,
pain is only so shallow to caress,
so through grief, we can't rise above.

I have found peace in the longing,
in believing I live so one may,
it's a fear to feel you're belonging
in a world that's filled with decay.

It's a love that we cannot replace,
not by anything I can implore,
I plead, let my mortal arms embrace thee,
the life that is no more.

    What a sad poem. Brings all the emotions to the readers heart through your words.

    It's a love that we cannot replace,
    not by anything I can implore,
    I plead, let my mortal arms embrace thee,
    the life that is no more

    How may times we wish to have what is no longer there. This stanza really gripped my heart.
    Great job!
