THE POOL OF MY LOVE FOR YOU

I lie bleeding

In a pool of my love for you

My heart remembering to beat the broken rhythm

My breath coming in short painful spurts

My face dry like the focus of a Harmattan morning

My limbs immobile

Losing their will to work with my brain

Too limp to fulfil their resolve

I lie here in a pool of my love for you

Bathed in memories of the promises you made me and I you

The promise of a very long us

The warmth you brought me

The way my heart beat with so much life and strength

The sound of your voice, your laugh and your breath over the phone

I lie here in a pool of my love for you

And still love you no less than I did yesterday.
