Cruel Eclipse

It’s Open Link Night at the dVerse Poets Pub!

 

Star-crossed and in perpetual orbit:

the Moon circling

the Earth circling

the Sun—your heart

beating

the rhythm of my soul.

Enter

the cruel eclipse:

spouses,

children!

(yours, mine

never ours).

Still,

this relentless and

unchangeable love,

our secret conflagration,

longs to burn

out loud.
