Poem: Smoldering Love

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

Poem Summary

Smoldering love is a poem which was written for a contest.

It tells the story of a woman who is crushed when she sees the spark in her man's eyes fade. She can hear his unspoken words fly across the room as he halts his affection hoping she will leave.

"Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus"

Originally for Contest

This poem was originally written for a contest, but it didn't win.

I decided to post it here for everyone to read.

Comments are welcome.

I hope you enjoy it.

Smoldering Love


When the glint in his eye is missing

and the sound of his voice is gruff

with a doleful look plastered on his face,

it crushes her heart.


It is in this moment

she hears his unspoken words

fly across the room,

smashing her heart into tiny gooey bits,

with the coldness in his eyes

splattering her like a fly on the wall

sending shivers down her spine.


His feelings of love

smoldering in rage,

burner hotter and brighter

deep inside his veins,

halting his affection,

hoping she withdraws

her hand from the ring.

The smarter you get the more you realize anger is not worth it.

— Maxime Lagace
