There is something to know at a given moment
when in slow degrees
her pensive ways
would let her slide by her dreams…
which hide behind the walls of her mind,
how they yield supreme delight
after all the uncertainty and disorders love could bring.
She has taken her vows
to claim back the recollections
she has pledged to defend and cherish,
as if it could somehow bring back
the innocence that once belonged to her…
What she would give up
to ascend a wondrous, grassy hill
where an ardent breeze could touch her face,
beholding a view that would wake up her senses,
which might bring tempest or calm
or whatever drama the sky has held for the day.
She would appeal for a higher strength
to soothe the ache of her wounded heart
to seek an answer to the question
about a wrong kind of loss
and a destiny fostering the rudest of truths.
You see her now
As she genuflects in peace
with the images of yesterdays
that speaks of bonds, sweetness, and friendship
recalling past intensities that justified her deeds.
She imagines the sunshine in his smile
the way she relishes the dividends of his affection
adorning her with a love – that knows no bounds.
The secrets in their souls
their shared longings and hopes
they consumed with an emotion
under a glow of a subdued light
the shelter of the night had sworn to keep…
The heavens may hold no promise
for an apathy she ought to banish
of events digging into her sensibilities
to memories she just might lose forever.
That she is being renewed somehow
by such moments and sentiments,
renders the birth of another truth
she could only uncover in time.
