Can I Believe In Your Love?

I am unaware of how your love speaks in the darkness of the night

Sweet words?

Chaotic kisses?

Tell me when the light of day approaches

Will you still sing to me

Delicate lies

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?

      Thank you for the compliments, I thought the line ‘Delicate lies’ brought something important to the poem that I wanted to preserve.
