A Tuscany Romance

May2015 001

Forever I see, Forever you are
Forever we believe
In our moment in the sun.

Standing on the knoll
Smells of lush green
Cathedral bells, Castle turrets
As though to protect us
In our moment in the sun.

Time ensnares
Riveted and rotting
Our fondness ceases to flower
Tracking muddy footsteps
Into the hallways of belovedness.

We walk coldly
Apart and stoic
No eye contact
No acknowledgement
No wonderment
Only an unspoken longing, an ache
For before.
