Rhythmed ... Hearts thrum ... Some, far heavier than others Darker, deeper, more tender and intense ... Those, hung on the hook of vows and affiance So quickened by a mournful word A promise that bloats with guarantee and dream Its hems, glinting with hopeful sparks ... The most treasured of tales A grand and vainglorious fiction Honed, precise, with sublime edge To bleed lovers' beats to stillness ... "Forever" Written and submitted on June 3, 2020 For the "The Promise" Poetry Contest Silent One, Sponsor.
