Wedding Bells

tender touch by anelephantcant

tender touch by anelephantcant

He talks of his unhappiness
To the wind and birds and trees
Understands that he must never count
The tears nobody sees

He recalls all her bland promises
Now sadly turned to dust
Hears the echo of the wedding bells
Silenced by lies and rust

Seconds or years keep slipping by
He misses her smiling eyes so much
He’d give a decade of his life
For one more tender touch

She needs some time to find herself
Says give me space to be alone
Neglects to come back to his arms
For reasons yet unknown

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
