A poem about my girlfriend and our ability to soar - a prose poem.
|Your sweet and caring embrace takes hold of me
Like the rapturous wingspan
Of the most marvelous, awe-inspiring bird -
We simply know of no kinder or gentler affection;
Our bodies are sewn in the timeless grace
And endless passion
Befitting the most thankful pair
Of blessed relations...
We continue to seek the freshest beginnings
And most novel rewards.
We are but two lovers
Transcending ancient myths
And oft told legends;
And conquering treacherous terrain
With a deeply-rooted passion
And unwavering trust.
Supporting each other through immense trials,
While gaining increasing knowledge and appreciation,
We focus with much ingenuity on productive paths;
Sailing forward with great love, pride,
And impeccable fortitude...
