Poems of Love: Possession

You’re a possession of mine
A possession, sweet
A possession- I’ll
Forever, keep

Neither to the earth,
Nor to the sky
When they say I should let go of your body,
They all lie

So what Death consumed you?
You still belong to me
Every cell in your body
Is a possession of mine
A possession, sweet

Your beautiful body and your clear skin
Locked up in this cold, metal tin
If it gets too chilly
My love will keep you warm; don’t you worry

But this is good now
If I hurt you, you won’t bleed
When we argue
You won’t weep

Remember you would say
That I take your breathe away?
Here we are now
The world believes me today.

    Wow. Both sides of that contrast were clear, palpable almost. You craft with the conviction of proximity.
