Age Doesn't Matter When You're in Love
Your adolescent love preserved ages
Mine a victim of uncertain choices
Whimsical tryst unlocked empty cages
Ignoring shrill caws of raven voices
Stars twinkling, moonlight casts glow on wrinkles
Wheelchair dance as nimble wheels spin tight arc
Twilight skies, clouds open, teardrop sprinkles
Sad raven circles overhead the dark
Age doesn't matter til dancing does cease
Twenty years difference only a number
Can love surpass ominous feathered beast?
Lay your weary head in peaceful slumber
Love, it seems, has subtle way of winning
Fingers entwined as the wheels quit spinning
Contest "Age Doesn't Matter When You're in Love"
