Love Denied

byLadynStFreknBed©

Locked in sweet embrace, we’re bathed in night’s gentle glow.
Echoed words left unsaid sear my heart with regret
as I painfully wait for your fondness to grow.

The dancing candle flame extinguished with one blow-
instantly, the darkness murders our silhouette.
Locked in sweet embrace, we’re bathed in night’s gentle glow.

I truthfully proclaimed my love for you although
I knew I could be left heartbroken and upset
as I painfully wait for your fondness to grow.

From our passion, I expected our love to flow.
Why are you withholding your love while we are yet
locked in sweet embrace? We’re bathed in night’s gentle glow.

You say your coldness is because your love comes slow.
My self-doubt and criticism become a threat
as I painfully wait for your fondness to grow.

Will you ever judge me worthy? I cannot know.
Without your love and respect, I won’t remain set,
locked in sweet embrace. We’re bathed in night’s gentle glow
as I painfully wait for your fondness to grow.
