Inspired by my love of the poetry of the Romantics, this poem speaks of love but of what kind of love is up to the reader

Into the Light

 

Yea though I would ne’er forsake thee,

Can I be thus assured thou art as true,

O’er many a kiss the moon hath shone

Down it’s luminous rays, thus lighting our love.

 

Were clouds to shadow the moons rays,

Would our love thus be shadowed also,

Can the sun’s rays give our love illumination

Or is it confined to darkness.

 

If our love cannot withstand the warmth of the sun,

Can we not assume it’s heart lies in coldness,

For are not darkness & coldness assimilated

As one, in the minds of most human souls.

 

Is it the mystery and intrigue of darkness,

That doth attract thou to a love such as ours,

Art thou afraid sunlight may reveal

What thou would prefer hidden in the moon’s mist.

 

Were I to force our love into the light,

Would thou cringe in childlike fear,

Would thou forsake the affection between us

Were it taken from behind shadows of the night.

 

Yea, though I would ne’er forsake thee,

Can I be thus assured thou art as true,

Would fear & denial take the rightful place of love

If into the light I were to bring my love for you.
