The Daily Prompt – Trace 2

The day has ebbed to a crisp warmth

With dusk fast approaching 

The sound of silence echoes in our midst

The evening chill gives me goose bumps

And my strength is drained and winding down

By this unending feud that dwells within us

Food has become tasteless and stale

My succour has drifted to a glass of daily sangria

And satisfaction glued to the television set


Ours was a special kind of love

Precious and sweet and witty

Until the worms crept into our hub

And sucked the intensity of our passion

Leaving us slackened between the sheets

Come, let’s trace this lull that dims our light

Come, let’s trace back our misguided steps

That quietens the laughter that once was heard

Come, let’s return to our promise of an unfettered joy

The assurances of an undiluted bond

The vow we once declared in love


Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Trace.

Peace and Love!

  1. TRACING things backward to do and love the way we used to! And THEN that “slackness–what a delicate and descriptive way to say it—is replaced with “rock hard passion” (sorry!) 🙂
