The focus shifts. Then that,
now this. I've lost interest
in the that. The dull daily
argument of all that is sordid.
Instead, i turn to the light;
a full 180 and see only
sweetness. Luminous as a new
bride, i am blush-flush and pink,
hot to the touch,so careful!
Like this, all else fades, and all
that is left is a young girl in
the mirror, her skin halogen
white, pink-cheeked with desire,
with love, with an ember
that became fire. Kiss off
the heartache. It was never
worth it. Those long nights
of sorrow, the doubt you'd
see tomorrow. So you lived,
and then you died, and now
resurrected you are a force
to be reckoned with. I've
now these words; only these,
love, Today i face the morrow,
it is bright blue and yielding,
i bend sapling green, adaptable
at last, see verdant fields,
see only love, endless, forgiving.

first line
not sure why the first line is skewed off to the right; sorry all,if i did something wrong, or if the admin sees it, can you fix it for me please? it's odd. i posted the poems like always, but he first line is off to the left, which makes the poem look like it starts in a different place...

thanks -- and thanks for taking these two.

thanks jessicann;

i prob. won't do it this time, but will be careful in the future, since i've already sent the links out to some friends, it would lose the same link, so i'm going to leave as is and hope people just find the first line - i imagine most will.

thanks for your speedy response though; i'm anxious to see what folks say about these two that i've submitted, as they are a bit of departure from some of the darker stuff i'd been publishing.

thanks again, and be well,
