Let Love Fly

Poem by: KaeNichole

Summary

I love this poem & connect to it so well. If you've seen the movie ATL you've heard it spoken before. It's equally beautiful as when written. I just wanted to share it with you. Enjoy ?

Pleasure turns to the pain

of the lessons learned from the strain

of the questions burned in my brain

about whether love is humane, in its touch.

These thoughts are like salmon

swimming upstream in the tears of your deceit.

Fighting the current hurt,

that kills more than is created.

By the chaos of our intertwined emotions 

chaotic because the anchor of Eros' arrow

Has been plucked from the vessel

of my undying infatuation.

Separation not as simple as the distance between us.

My mind no longer possessed 

by the demons,

that had been the overseers of my enslavement to your lies

The seeds of these lies rooted so deeply. 

They have cracked the foundation of what we once shared

Allowing the faith in us I had sealed inside

to gush out like a river.

Ripping the image of our future together from my thoughts.

As violently and as brutally as if it were a child,

being taken from its mothers arms. 

I'm left surrounded in darkness.

But I refuse to be swallowed by it.

My loneliness like the night air.

Invisible to the eye,

Obvious to the touch.

In its child uncomfortablness

Yet if i could do it all over again

I'd do it in the same skin I'm in.

To lay down and let love die

Just stay down and let love lie

No...No... not I.

I'll stay around and let love fly

Even though I have seen its darkest form; deceit.

Nothing else could taste this warm

or feel this sweet. ?____________________ .
