Email Poem | Today's Poetry

Until you love me more
Than stars and stripes
Until you love me more
Than patriotic themes, schemes, flags,
Drums, wars, and revelries

Until you love me more
Than haunted dreams, screams
Nightmares and memories

By your side
 Breathing, calling, beckoning,
Sustaining and giving life
Undesperately devoted
Passionate wife

Stoking fires, lighting candles, dancing rhythms
Evenings brush of soft moonlight

Sacred space, intimately entwined
with prayers of grace

Where bodies blend
Aromas envelope and descend
Kindling of heaven again

Until you love me more
Than vengeance, justice and the world between us

Until you love me more
Than cars, house, money, trappings

Until you love me more
Than shows, movies, sports, distractions

Your meadow dancing
Horse back riding
Garden planting
Fruitful bride

Soothing hands
Love's eternal glance
Wisdom's healing
Lover's guide
into simple lands

Giving, unrelenting, ever restoring
Bearer of the breech
Until all in all
Whole is complete

Repairer in the wake
Ashes scattered
Past blown in winds of nothingness

Handcuff, lock, bind
Soul to soul
Into perpetual marital bliss

Until you love me more
Than all of this ~ ~ ~

Return to Innocence
