Poem – “This Rope about your Feet” – Romanticism – 11/25/2020

This life
Holds you against
The fever,
This scorn
Where dust mires you beneath
Shadows above shelter,
Kisses from God.

I wish to love
Without watching you,
Staring across
Guiding tragedies,
Tremoring streets,

Leaving dust to settle
Upon those frozen lips.

Calling lions
To erase the guilt
I have to faith,
Of Heavens stooped in fervor,
Where passion displaces
Sound from travelling sound,
Love from senseless love.

Pointless hearts
Are the case of lovers,
Whose feet slip
More than their hands.
