Poem – “Upon Her Burning Arrow” – Romance – 11/14/2020

Let us love
Until the day is won
By the city’s sculptural nights,
Losing messages
In the wind, of our screaming sighs,
Facing tears,
Winding back fears
To when minute hands could soothe.

Lifting your veil
To bury a kiss into your lips,
Finding a heart
Beyond the sea of your form,
To an island of dreams,
Leaving anchors behind
In the stillness of empty clouds,
Where hearts do not shower.

Let us die
Among each other’s lives,
While the world can gleam itself
Raw with the sun.

I can start a journey
Upon hollow waves,
To see you, beneath the current,
Still singing sadness away.
