embrace


melded souls melting time
with clumsy careless words
making love
pay for reason
shutting windows
lest yearning oozes
into wanton hope
imbuing reality
with child-like promises
wanting to wander
interlacing fingers
so we forget this grief
in all its glory
in our last embrace

  1. So visceral and evocative. Two people can forget the world with each other. That’s all that really matters, especially if such love can elude to its own world away from the grief and suffering in the present. Such a beautifully written piece.
