Enemy Love Song

Enemy Love Song

A Poem by Emily Robinson

I have someone I love very much, the problem is, we can never speak to eachother again.


I wasn't planning to love you
It was my most faraway thought
For the vicious ways you had tried to destroy me
have rarely left my thoughts

Now when I see you I am haunted
My heart wants to reach out and squeeze your hand
Is this was it means to love your worst enemy?
Weeping, I ache for you to understand

That day I sat across from you in the court room
I had to say what we both had heard
With pain in my eyes I tried to silently remind you
of the truth that no one else would admit to

Months later, side by side, we often wait at the bus stop
pretending we are strangers
No one around would guess our intimate story
of the chaos, regret, and dangers

And with my eyes, I still try to reach you
and speak the unspoken words of "I forgive you"
Then I realize I am accidentally doing what Jesus told me to do,
because I love you and we're enemies.
