When You Are In Love

When You Are In Love

A Poem by Christy

You are a masterpiece
of feeling me around you
love beyond any feeling
we are of perfect belief

You touch me with hands
that want to know more
and need to know more
and find what they are looking for

You are cautious not to say words that harm
or words that cause alarm
for waiver or unstable emotion
and we are what everyone wants

Challenging nothing inside yourself
let it go and be
what we are accepting
us through every loving scene

In your mind we are a family
laughing and loving
with every lung that breathes
building on blocks we have not seen

This life leads to being old and gray
together on a porch with two
rocking chairs side by side that rock
back and forth until evening comes

In your mind this is all unseen
a struggle to understand what
love really means, not up and down
not lies or shame felt

To us we are waiting to see
the next step to take
to complete us together, apart
what will become of our history

Together is what we want
will it be there tomorrow
will it stand through more
than this love has already endured?

I know you are afraid
of things that are unwritten
afraid to let go of your past but
if you and I should stand to last, it is
Our past that must be unwritten
