Cold Lingering Love

I feel this love can be too cold

I am starting to want a new story told

The cool routine of apathy is getting old

So I will try to speak to be brave and bold.

It may be easier to give in and just fold

But I thought I treated you like gold

Gave you a warm hand to hold

Has your heart been bought and sold?

Do I really need even more of

Such a cool type of love?

It's time to grow and rise above

I believe in the power of higher love.

Cold Cold Heart

Good poem Nella. Love needs to rise to that higher plateau, not a mediocre shadow of its true self.

Sometimes we give more than we receive....

Is that honesty Love...

Or should we heed the warning staring us in the face.
