Return to Love


She could not be tamed,

although they all tried

until he came along

and opened up her world.

He sat with assurance,

a certainty beyond this realm,

that in letting her go

she would always return

because love is never caged,

possessed or owned by


Love is meant to roam,

ascending uninhibited and exploring

the endless ventures of these veils

we have restricted in ourselves.

For the first time she was able to dream,

see herself through childlike eyes,

be all she yearned to be,

and stumble into truth

of what others never saw

nor cared to understand.

He made no judgment,

or criticized, allowing passion

to dictate her desire for life.

He never waited with anticipation,

 anxiety, or fear of loss

because in the end

it was always their love

that left crumbs for her descent

returning to his arms

time and time again.
