Poem – “Be Alive” – Love Poetry – 3/22/2021

Idiocies
Have kept me staid
With the barest words
You’ve taken to be
Cruelest honesty.

I have said
The worst in history
To keep you murdered
Outside of gentleness,
From the mind of mine
That bathed in such
Absence in consolation.

Be alive
Even in the dust,
For I will lift you,
I will soar you
Across the barren fields,
To the distant solitude
Of crystal Heaven.

Be alive
Even among the thorns,
That this chance for an eternity
Might live on
Hurling ourselves towards
Greatest majesty.
