Poem – “Tearstained Loyalty” – Romance – 10/30/2020

Like love never wore proudly
The mark of you,
To soothe
The dark of you,
Leaving flickers to set you to sleep,
My deepest romance,
Kissing you, under the vow
To never depart
From the heart, of you.

I can rest
Deep below your shadow,
Leaving drops to count a new light,
Falling from my eyes,
In tearstained loyalty.

Your words,
Your eyes
Are to my every obedience.
I love the world
That has undressed you.

I love the song you stick
To each new light.
Cityscapes are barren,
Holding the moon in its arms.
A wilderness of terror,
To the small room of our endeavor
Where we can hold pages of us
In everlasting fervor.
