Dingle

DINGLE

–noun
a deep, narrow cleft between hills; shady dell.






















There,
Lost
In the
Dark dingle,
The metallic dell
Of seemingly faltering love,
I have lost the key to your dreams.
Unable to mourn,
I rattle
The lock
In
Vain.

This certainly opens doors to a lot of thoughts. I shall ponder awhile.

Sad and forlorn. Words forgotten and found.
