LOVING AGAIN

Poem by Gloria Wade-Gayles


Last night
we loved as if the gods
had announced only to us
that the sky would fall
while we slept.



We loved
passionately
selflessly



thinking only of pleasure
giving pleasure



and I knew I would not grieve
if life should end as you held me.



Daybreak!

The sun slid silently
into our room
kissed our faces
and lay softly
in our love bed.


The sky had not fallen.
We were alive...



... to love again.

  7. Many thanks to you all - glad you liked it!

    Eliza, that poem is from a collection of English poems & love letters I read in order to learn English. It's fun to learn something when you enjoy the subject matter.
