For Love

 

by Nancy

  

 

A rage of pain

 

Life

Swept away

In her tears

Her pledge

 

Ransom

For me

For my world

 

~

 

That I might

Sleep away

A hopeless Forever

In numb denial

As she will live it

At his side

In his bed

 

For loving

Me

 

How shall I

Continue

Bereft

At fault

Imagining

 

I can be no less heroic

Generous

No less

Tortured

 

For love

Catherine

 

For you

My only Love

 

 

for H
