Pen Life

Written by: Gareth Heslop

It’s an anxious time
of life to see
me through where I can’t 
vision a future.
She writes eloquent
and captures a heart
but I scare myself
 with its effects.
Would I hope upon 
hope its true
my love may burn
but a passion nullified
by a brain mummified
is resisting too strong.
It has boiled over
It will bubble through
It’s power will increase
with a heart molded
in one piece.
Please love me 
please hold me
please hug me
and never let go
envelope me in
and my warmth will
light your soul
will burn your passions
will take you away
if I could only
make your heart pound.
