loss seems forever ~ tanka

loss seems forever
in darkness beyond desire
new needs awaken
one heart touches another
the beauty of new love born

Starting as a senryū, this tanka is my response to
Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge
No. 135 #SynonymsOnly
, which offers pretty and ugly as prompt words.
I have used “
beauty” and “darkness” as synonyms.
