Sitting in this darkening room

I feel desire

For a girl’s sweet perfume,

But the flame

Is not the same

As of yore.



For flames die

And turn to ash.

And I

Must pass

From bedroom to tomb

Where love and lust

Are one in dust.

      Hi Michael. I think poems often reflect what is in the poet’s heart when he composes a given poem. The emotions he is experiencing (or the thoughts going through his head) at a specific moment may be reflected in what he writes. Best wishes. Kevin
