He is Speaking Poet, Once Again

He has taken to conversing with me, in lines of meter and rhyme, even slipping into free verse… and I am falling for him again and again, after all this time…


Adrenaline may fade
Love marks the soul
As long as life

Attraction may reduce
To dim coals
The brands always remain

If you know,
Even after the stanza ends
Your course is eternally altered

Blindly we caress and explore
Our new reality
Life changed by our encounter

With the glow of the embers
We explore our new selves
In the dull glow

Through ink, passion and pain
We are transformed
Into new and beings

To restart with new forms
The brave will embrace
The change and reignite
