Tread softly


9th DECEMBER, 2010

Tread softly
You step on a fragile heart
Trampled under love’s weight
A collage of drained promises, mangled by fate. 

Tread softly
These broken pieces are concealed awls.
Piercing through aberrant emotions
If crushed by heavy footfalls. 

Tread softly
For the shriveled soul may yet bleed
Unable to bear the familiar throes
Of unsynchronized love beats. 

Tread softly
Mindful of the besotted love shards
As the still smoldering embers
emit their final dying sparks. 

Tread softly
Silent lyrics float unrestrained
Oblivious to the reverberating echoes
Let hope linger in blissful ignorance again. 

Tread softly
Treacherous mires cover the earth
Subtle desire seeps into subdued hearts
When Love fights for a rebirth.

  2. That was beautiful Butterfly I really likes this part

    Tread softly
    Silent lyrics float unrestrained
    Oblivious to the reverberating echoes
    Let hope linger in blissful ignorance again.

    Well done. I feel your pain

  3. Love it – reminds me of W.B Yeats “I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” which is one of my favourites
