At Least

Our hearts were a veritable slow dance

And I didn’t have to put my baby
In the corner

Our retinas
became diamond forged binds
In serenity’s lock

Dipping
Your tear ducts within our wishing wells

Never
Running
Dry

Our flesh
Bringing lukewarm elasticity
To gentle boil

Every graceful thrust
Mimicking fireplace embers
Under cabin’s winter moon

Until my deep sigh
Embedded paragraphs
Within “Dear John” parchment

…

At least

Trinity’s hourglass
Permitted me to sing I love you choruses

Before your hearts’ phone line
Disconnected

…

    "Until... " "At least... " Depicts some haunted gratitude though the end is clearly in sight. Emotionally charging, a heartfelt piece. As usual with you... A phenomenal talent! Hugs

    Again, I like your impassioned poetry too often full of dreariness, but very effective

    Hi, Laura! =D I'm very glad you enjoyed this. I don't think this is even close to genius. But, I know this didn't suck either. lol You're very kind in your comments. Thank you so much!

    an intriguing piece, as your poems so often are; sensuality mixed with sadness, good use of metaphor, this is what free verse is all about...thanks for stopping by with your uplifting comment :)

    A romantic night of passion, each knowing it would be their last time in each others arms, they cry tears of joy and sadness. Your writes are like doing puzzles and I love putting the pieces together. Excellent write Drake! Hugs

    I really like how you put words together. They fit, but almost don't. Romantic & steamy and sad. My favorite lines are "Bringing lukewarm elasticity/To gentle boil" Good stuff... Jack
