To Love Again

I would like to know a woman well again.
And for her to know me just as well.
Each of us to  know the other
honestly, completely, 
openly and passionately.
To know in such a way
that would not allow that miracle to fade
to some manufactured flimsy 
of what it once had been.
Then that we had
would never sour.
We'd bear no witness to its lustiness
neglected, starved,
paling to some shrunken thing,
smothering with its dry and celibate corpse,
our song, our anthem.
And so, before that warmth and yearning
could cool and weary, we would,
with smiles and hugs and kisses,
and maybe tears,
say goodbye
and never think to hesitate
to love again.

    Red, my wish for you is that you know love again and that that love be reciprocated. I'm rooting for you, my friend. Brilliant poetry. Hugs, Licia :-)

    I see someone here wrote "extraordinary" and I think that too. This is a poem that I can tell had a lot of work put into it. I really appreciate that about you, Red. How you do things very well. The feelings you express here are easy for many people to relate to, I am sure.
