LOVERS CAUGHT IN THE MODERN WORLD

LOVERS CAUGHT IN THE MODERN WORLD


Culture keeps us safe
Until it fades
Family keeps us warm
When we need shade—
Techno worlds are brash
And spit out
          Texting love--

word loss
makes hearts clash
Gives lives a shove
spring roses turn to ash

Leaves lovers wondering
Is this life complete--
Leaves dreamers listless--
stills lovely dancing feet


Blaze the path
wayward lover
Create new words
      delicate
something each fragile lip can say

Lovers toss skin
Naked standing
    shedding
Naked
 Blood to bone
And, amidst the fog
Stand Dazed, Perplexed--
Lose their will to roam
Fearfully Refuse to
Leave the safety of
Their natural home.

Blaze the path
wayward lover
create new words
     delicate
something my fragile lips can say
