let's love again

let's love again

A Poem by linda m. crate

Because hope like love never dies.

leaves left their imprint on the cement
like you etched upon my soul
a song i'll never forget
even if you're lilting another psalm
into existence without me;
white knees of the moon
skin me with memories of you
silver dancing with gold -
i'm done courting despair
he only holds grudges
and bears me ill will
maybe i feel too much,
but maybe you feel too little
i forgave you because i'm so in love with you
this can't be the end
shine with me
be a light in this ever present darkness
let's lift indifference and apathy
until their skirts are devoured by lions -
shimmering stars swam sinuously
their sweet song in my eyes
when i was encompassed by your romance
now no longer bathed in it
the light has swiftly departed
whence whatever ocean it flowed from;
be more than just an ember
of bitterness held in my palm
ignite the spark of life in me once more
alone i can do much,
but with you i truly shine
we have such a deep connection
it need not be shattered
by insecurities and fears -
let me stop
crying rivers into formation
and drowning in
rain drops searching for your face
i love you;
you love me,
what more do we need?
always, always
i am to blame
make me the bad guy i'm sorry
i hurt you,
but did you ever consider
just how deeply
you wounded me?
i'm sick of this war can't we just
stop shooting
arrows at one another?
let's love one another a romance better than the
first whose wings are stronger than wax
so we don't let it be washed away
by the current or be singed
angrily in the sun.
