"and kisses are a better faith than freedom"


Sitting alone in the park,
listening to the the trees
dance ballets in the dark,
they realized it wasn’t the wind
that had blown away their spark.

I enjoyed the simplicity of this poem. But the hidden depth behind the words. I think this one of my favorites..:)

Thank you, but it's basically about a couple who realies it wasn't the "wind" that had blwo out their "spark", meaning that they realized it wasn't something simple that had ruined their relationship, if that makes sense!

I like the words and the flow of your poem, but I don't quite grasp the meaning of it. Can you explain it to me?
