Deciduous Tree

What did you get out of it all?
Was the deceiving for fun
Or you moved away 
Threatened by the depth of love? 
What brought you to the fence
Seeking warmth?
I saw, how scared you are of fire! 

The loneliness seeps into 
The silence,
Merges with the darkness
To settle in like a cold winter
Engulfing my heart.

Oh, December within 
Cries for that cinder
That can flare up the fire.

You may have flowers 
Bestrewing your garden
But there remains  
A deciduous tree at the corner
Losing its all, awaiting 
The time for spring....
