I am unaware of how your love speaks in the darkness of the night
Tell me when the light of day approaches
Will you still sing to me
A slight touch of the hand
My heart beats, it rampages in my chest
I am lost in your words
Confused by your love
Do the words belong to me?
Can I make them my own?
Can I keep your promises close?
Will you love me when the lights go out?
Will you remember these feelings? This struggling in my chest?
The quest for air commences
And I am still short of breath
Can I believe in your love?

Lovely poem…jj, I’d omit ‘Delicate lies’ though. ahuh. 🙂
Thank you for the compliments, I thought the line ‘Delicate lies’ brought something important to the poem that I wanted to preserve.
