“A Tear Dances in White” – Poem

By

A tear dances,

Upon a petal’s edge.

A tear dances, where I have come to pledge,

Myself to you, my love.

Tears of joy are to be infinite,

For our occasion.

Tears of sadness, never infinite,

For our occasion.

Let it drop from the white petal,

Let it make curves over the petal’s texture,

Let it run itself to add further substance to our cup,

So that we may drink.

Let it wield,

The passion, the fruit.

Let it follow us,

Through trails made of silk.

Let us not deceive ourselves,

In this time.
