Where does love go when it dies?
The passionate promises
and wanton whispers in winter
the childish wishes of ever-after
and delirious daydreams
that once were laced
with fragrance of orange blossoms
and delighted
as daisies on May mornings
and rainbows after the storm.

Where does love go when it dies?
When tides turn sweet tears to salt
when giggles turn
into half-truths and lil’ lies
chills and criticism
into bitterness and blame
and love
love shrinks unto itself
raw and lackluster
lost in long silence
in solitude and loneliness
regret and remorse
to return no more.

Where does love go when it dies?
Where does it go?
