It's all right, love.  Go now.

It's all right, love. Go now.

A Poem by JCharo

a dedication

Go now,

like the heroine who holds on to
the muscular hero's palm, who
frantically shouts
"whatever you do, don't look down"

and she yells "it's o.k., love"
is what defines us not what makes us
we're all dependent on breath
but underground bound

and she let's go

n' it's fine as long as she left
satisfaction with those who wept
at her wake. Those crying lakes
and those that simply feigned
as if our day finally came
like a dry tongue waiting for rain
it's a shame the things that make love
are the same creating the pain

like ice debating the flame
your only delaying the maim
if all of your points are valid
but your talent is fading away

and your smile is shading the snake
that climbs your spine finding aches
to manipulate your fate
your puppeteer tightening strings

Life is full of such frightening things
Nightmares that despise such dreams
I dare to find such schemes
That might scare any life between

I could scream from what I know now
live a life that no man can hold down
but again, it is all right
love, you are allowed to go now
