Your warmth is getting hot

Poet's Notes

A relationship where one partner is particularly troubled and prone to disappointing the other. Forgiveness being their keystone for lasting love.

I’ve failed you
More than once
Should I continue to disappoint
I surely won’t be the one you anoint

Your annoyance escalates to anger
Failing to change I risk being a stranger
I feel your heat on the morrow
And return in kind with such sorrow

Can you forgive, again, and again
And forever
A higher love nestled in your grace
Yet of it, I see no trace
Forgiveness is the fount of your stunning allure 
Your compassion exceeds any love I’ve known before

Because of it, we survive
Coexisting, your anger and your love
Having purity exceeding that of the white dove
Your warmth is getting hot
