POEM – ‘Three, Four, Infinity’

I TRY TO WRITE MY LOVE
YET INK CANNOT CARRY ROMANCE.
THE PEN CANNOT WRITE EMOTION
NOTHING I SAY CAN DESCRIBE THE FEELING.
TWO HEARTS INTERLOCKED
BECOMING ONE
NO LONGER SEPARATED BY GEOGRAPHY OR FATE.
HER EYES SPARKLE AND I CATCH MY BREATH
SUCH BEAUTY, SUCH MAGIC.
I REACH OVER, KISSING HER HUNGRILY
THE WORLD STOPS
THEN SPINS OFF ITS AXIS.
BREATHE, LOVER, BREATHE
EYES ARE CLOSED
AND I PRAY IF SHE DREAMS SHE DREAMS OF ME.
WHEN I LOOK AGAIN
HER GRACE IS GONE
HER FACE REMAINS IN MY MIND
BUT HER HUMAN FORM FLOATS BACK TO PEPPERLAND
WHERE REAL LIFE CUTS ME LIKE A KNIFE.
SAIL BACK BEAUTY,
SOLITUDE WEEPS.
