Autumn depending on our perspectives can be both a beginning or an end,to me it is an end,an end to Summer…heart-breaking,here I wrote about autumn,words and thoughts,death and departure,promises of eternal love…eternal remembrance…eternal mourning…

fall for me like autumn leaves…
let go and be mine…
I know you fear that darkness
will dawn on love…
but I promise I won’t let us fade…
our love will always wear a burning red…
for your name’s forever engraved
on the folds of my mind…

I’ll keep our intimacies…
shared words…
thoughts and memories
in between fragrant pages…
eternally safe from erosion
by the hands of time

Autumn bore the brunt of a broken heart…
when Summer faded away ruthlessly
stealing even it’s words and thoughts…
it bled saffron and lost all it’s colours…
whilst mourning the death of love…
gradually slipped into winter…
turning cold and pale…
buried itself under
it’s own shadow and frozen snow…
choking to death
it’s dreams and existence…
alas…no spring visited it again…
only endless rain…
…only endless rain
