my heart is barren when you are away by ShadowDancer

my heart is barren when you are away by 

a desert has consumed
my aching heart
filling its dusty cavity
with bronzeberry memories
laden in promises
of your return

my heart is barren
when you are away

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    I can so relate to this – I’ve always called my emotionally or spiritually desolate times, the desert. This so perfectly reflects that sense of loss and emptiness! Wonderful work Patty Jo.

  • lianne… you are so right. some things in life make us feel bone dry… i feel so comforted that you share the understanding of this piece.. thank you so much.
