Do You Still Love Me

As the shadows lengthen 
Across your lined face 
As I wait. 
And wait again. 
Until I cannot bear to wait a second more. 
I ask you 
"Do you still love me".  

Ah the age old question. 
One that hides centuries of longing 
Hides the deepest feelings 
Of guilt and paranoia. 
That question asked of kings and concubines 
Of blacksmiths and their whores 
Of a farmer and his sweetheart 
And arguments behind closed doors. 

Shutting out the world 
Doesn't make it any less real. 
It brings your heart crashing down 
Around your tired feet. 
You've fought until you bled 
And now you've had enough 
But that one question is both 
A admission of defeat 
And a cause to keep on fighting. 

The reply hangs in the balance 
I see you struggling hard 
What I did, you can't forgive 
And yet, yet, a part of you understands 
A tiny sliver that screams 
Let go. Give up. Forgive. 
Finally you whisper 
And all is right with the world.
