7 (Persephone)

This blessed fruit
that binds us together,
each seed which leads
me into your embrace.
Heaven and the underworld intertwined,
months of melancholia as I pined
I no longer mourn
during my midwinter,
when the first snowdrop
peeps its head prematurely.
I have been reunited
with my love..
in darkness,
I rejoice.

  1. I think poems are beautifull and I also think I share some of the same feelings you express in your poems. I've been writing poems for a while now mostly to express feelings I can't any other way (although I've never published any online.)
