The flame that never dies.

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Jun 02, 2016

Without your love 
I am a bird without wings .
Without your love 
I am a violin without strings .
Without your love 
I am a song without words .
Without your love 
I am the wind without a breeze .
Without your love 
I am a night without the stars 
Without your love 
I am the sun that never shines 
But with your love 
I am the flame that never dies.

Christopher, this is a great poem for a wife or girlfriend. I have read all of your poems and found them to be exceptionally well written. My favorite is "The Cemetery" but I also enjoyed "Two Fold". I would like to pick your brain on how you write. You remind me of William Carlos William, you can create a poem out of something simple and give it color. Keep writing.
Christopher Russon commented:
Thank you for your lovely comment. I find it hard to write deep poems. I started writing seriously at Christmas time. I have read some of your poems Well written with depth.a key that I am looping for. I may write a deep one one day.

Yes, in our youth we sing about the One - when that One gone - the task is to sing about All, I know it will be an easy transition to a man who writes such touching heartfilled poem.
Stephen Westerland commented:

Great idea, it started well but i reckon you could have nailed it with a bit more rhyme. sorry to be harsh, if it seems that way

Love and respect can't be bought only earned. This wondeful poem reminds me how fragile we are without it. Thanks for a lovely poem!
