words and worlds

the words and worlds where you abide will shortly disappear
and I will be your long lost love though I was never here
the price of doing business may be more than you can pay
but that’s a risk that you must take should you decide to play

the January winds are sharp and cut you to the bone
and in your heart of hearts you know you’ll always be alone
send up all the flares you want there’s no-one here to see
the wild wind has the final words and they are “not to be”

and plagued by time’s indifference you have no cause to hope
the best a person can do here is merely try to cope
the ties that bind you to this place can never be undone
and truth will come a-calling at the setting of the sun

    I liked all three stanzas and they stand alone excellently as well as all go together to form one poem. The middle stanza is my favorite though. Well done! πŸ˜€

    • Thank you πŸ˜€ I was trying to capture the same mood in each verse, rather than create a cohesive narrative πŸ˜€
