Love Laws

Can you forget the love laws
and for one night feel the ache
in our curves? You’ll show me where
it hurts the most. Could you forget
about your tongue harnessed
in the Reason of the world? It draws
a rigid line our bodies refuse to bend to.
We’d forget how to construct a sentence
and listen to what is said in a moan
resonating in our eyes, lips, hands
from the pit of our stomachs; speak
a new nonsense. In a moment
we’d lose ourselves in a sound,
like that night, during awkward small talk
desire lingered in the space where
you and I begun. Knowing how to
hold each other, we danced.
We didn’t have anything
but skin, the salt from our eyes
the sadness in a kiss.

  1. Such a thought provoking poem about a love relationship…I wondered what ‘law’ had broken the true line of communication…but in asking the question I began to think of several…well said.

WOW! just the thought of listening to what is said in a moan and ‘csn you forget the love laws and for one night feel the ache in our curves?’ very thought provoking as slpmartin said…and then in the end “the skin, the salt from our eyes the sadness in a kiss.” that is profound blog friend.

  3. it is good this place where thoughts are frozen and passion is ignited…every line speaks so loud yet there is not a shout anywhere…i am sure we can all identify with this beautiful passion you have expressed….
