A Prayer for Lost Loves

For The Sunday Muse prompt #114:

***
May the pains
of today’s desires
lose themselves in
the fragrance of
a love reborn,
the pained passion of
unrequited love find itself
returned in time
like a blossom that speaks,
a sacred whisper to the soul
colouring everything in
the light of a rose,
beautiful in its bleeding
yet whole, because the Lover
and the Loved like thorn and rose
find themselves entwined,
from past pain and tortured paths,
delirious joy arising.

    “unrequited love returned in time like a blossom that speaks a sacred whisper to the soul” …. so beautifully written! As it’s said, love is sweeter the second time around!

    “because the Lover
    and the Loved like thorn and rose
    find themselves entwined” — Yes. Beautiful.
