    Dying Embers

    should I have been older
    and somewhat bolder
    of course, I would have told her

    not afeard to catch her eye
    well with tears, hear her cry
    and quickly let us die

    yet slowly, my arms enfold her
    silent as I hold her
    against my cold shoulder

    A succinct and crisp bit of poetry. The rhyming is great and the cooling colours as the deceit of the cooled-off lover progresses emphasise the message perfectly. You should have submitted this one to Cacophony!
