Poem – “Of Pain Stored on Shelves” – Romance – 4/2/2020

How have you faltered

Beneath the driving winds

And sleeting rain?

How have you denied

What we both cried for

Under the heaviest torrents

And pounding waves?

My eyes can only see so much

Behind the tears.

Just a face or an ear

To gaze or to hear.

My love, with your bravest voice.

Come play misery with me,

And send more pages to the books

Full with ink, displaying pain

To be noticed by the world, and its looks.

We have no shame,

Just ourselves.
