Poem: "Echo of Words"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Just a note

This poem is one I dug out of the closet that I had written awhile back. It has not been posted before.

I hope you enjoy it.

"Echo of Words"

Wrapped in the echo of familiar words

her heart begins to crack,

tears fall without warning.


Her love fades,

as he hides his love

behind secret walls,

without shouting it from the rooftop

for all to know.


Burning her heart with temptation,

promising her the world,

with no respect

for the dignity of their love.
