Autumn Skies



I found an over hearted desert 

deep in my thoughts;

that made its way down to my heart,

But when I look deeper into my heart

I found a hunger,


a howling that was crying loudly

deep within me;

while I looked around out side 

just to see the sheet of the autumn sky,


I felt my own loneliness 

weeping for the one I miss,

as the teas of fall broken down in my heart 

as the years moved along

like an old sad song,


across the way is a beautiful garden 

where my true love lays

Oh, how my sadden heart craved 

the years of yesterday’s.
