A Poem-The space of love

If I drew a line from here to you

And the lust between us was real

Are you the image I wake up too

An image that won’t fade with time

The risk are high, the risk are true

Are you the one, can I be sure

Or just the one before the last

I leap without looking

No rope, no net, a slip, a fall

And hope that I am caught

A simple embrace in my search for comfort

Bodies tangled for moments extended

Love is a fickle beast, a monster of place and time

It waits for weakness in our hearts

A hurt to feel, a whole to share, a soul to shine

Light in an otherwise darkened space


An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings



About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
