Hope's Last Chance


If I Fall
it will not be
because of the Season
Nature herself retreats here.

If I kiss your Summer mouth
Summer's lips
here recede.

If Winter should in the end
overcome us;
icicles of the North,

it will be because I misunderstood you
and stupidly
feasted
upon your admiration
choosing to water-cooler our story
when I should have cherished it.

I stand now
hoping for Spring's Renewed Hope
undeserving
Excuse Berefted
still not fully comprehending
Cupid's Arrow
is often
deflected
by Ego Shields.

Take this
as my
Soul's Wedge
toward that surface
which
is
Love's
Recognition
and Hopes
Last Chance.

    I love your lyric, choosing to water cooler our story...all too often spilling one's soul, rather than relishing the privacy of passion is a mistaken misgivings. Well dine expressing your sentiments. I will continue exploring your poetry, and invite you into mine. PEACE (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
