Withered Whirlwind!

DROWNING sorrow, filled with broken dreams, whirlwind storms;
TEARING heart, haunting dwellings, ruptures vitality, thorns;
FROWNING, sadness, humbly invading deepest heart core bliss;
PROMISES fading, evasion subside, frugally relentless;
GONE, forever, sweet shape of beauty, love pass nor so rise;
SUFFOCATING slayed faith, heart torn unto close-fisted;
BEGONE, simple days of embellishment, nearer linger brink;
FORGOTTEN, pushed aside, inarticulate joy and pride, die;
SECRETS, sharing, dark spirits, binded, nor wish to abide;
BELIEVING, deep emeral ocean would host, delightful outcome;
EVERLASTING love, merely a feeling of despair, begone;
FORBIDDEN, blessed heart beaming desires lifted night;
NEVER grasp fortitude, pale sleepers deepest plight;
SADDENED, grieving loss, distorted winds, eclipsed endearment;
WASHED away tears, waxed peak ebbs endurement;
FADED, far beyond memory, spray of tranquil breath;
FICKLE moon passing, running through sluggish veins;
TIME has begone, pass love, rolled out burning flames;
Immemorial past, futilely into silence, graves;
RESTLESS, running resilient, unlifted brow outrage;
WEEPING, untrustworthy, reproach, pouring cold thorns;
GASPING air, commandable breath of life away blown;
COMPULSION, no further, purpose sprung for you, unknown;
FORGOTTEN, fire of life, heaved hearts, afterglow foe, WITHERED!
