The Choice

The Choice

A Poem by Aaron Parker

This was one of my favorites to write. Enjoy!


Tethered by a silver cord

Of shared memories

Bound by the shackles

Of our golden embrace


Finding each other and ourselves

As we stride by moonlight

To our apocryphal rendezvous

Under the canvas of a star light sky


The vines of our love spread

Growing over doubt, depression, and misery

Blooming happiness over a graveyard of dreams

Weaving a web of intricate lace

A protective net on which to lie


Love for you, an unchained melody

Dreams of you, a paradise

Your whisper a deafening encouragement

Emerald eyes and ruby lips an escape


I loved you with all I was


But heavy hands and a greedy heart

Caused the inferno

That tore us apart


Uncovering those old emotions

Allowing them to escape and propagate

Over the nutritive remains

Of our once flowering love


As our Camelot collapses around us,

Fearful am I,

I cannot lose you, my love

But a choice I must make
