A Poem by linda m. crate

A love poem.

a rainy day
brings me back
to your porch
you burst through
soaking wet
kissed me
headed off to work
oh, i miss all the moments
that sing like that

times that smell sweeter now
in fond recollection than they did
even then, i never thought
those moments would die but they
closed their eyes all too soon

now i sit here
unwinding into some
insanity i cannot
fight no matter how hard
i scream against it's 
bitter cynical hand, reality
trying to hush me back 
into the person i once was;

i can't become that
girl again beaming and radiant
a crimson lily hung in a sunset sky
because your love transformed
me with a will and desire
to be a better person now i don't
care if i crash into the haze
of oblivion and become void

they say i'm heartsick

yet they can never understand
how deeply, madly, truly i will always
love you because there's a connection they
may not understand; but cannot be
severed all the same.
