Love poems by Yvonne Walus

today i daydream in ochre
sepia memories faded and pale
bending to will
supple with age
masterpieces of times passed
masterpieces of times faked
masterpieces of faked times
that truly never were
today i daydream in lies


you and i and our relationship
we bank the fire of passion
fuel the fever of disease
we paint over the rosy past
spotlight the pain
and every now and then

we taste a morsel of regret


the obligatory white dress
a walk down the aisle
a glitter of gold
and a three-tiered cake
like a fairy tale
or a cliché

three decades later
dreams snapped like a twig
the heart too indifferent
to care
