A Couple's Surprise - Poem by Dylan Rivera

When you first meet,
it feels perhaps you know.
'I love you' let me just say,
because of course with time, we'll grow.
Eyes that first reveal too many questions
still leave the heart excited.
But with awful surprise,
tears will eventually cry misguidance.
I used to commit these mistakes.
And throw my pennies down a well.
Wondering if they laid unconcerned with sleep,
or if they laid vibrant,
under Cupid's spell.
Please, someone, somewhere answer my calls!
If not for me, at least for love's sake.
And with time, my pennies joined together,
but wishes they did not make.
I ask you to be with me as selfish as infants.
And never give in to another smile that seems more deserving.
Think and understand, before you find my reasoning,
at all unnerving.
I will learn to run like old women to church on Sundays.
When they've gotten too old and scared to know whether god is really true.
And they keep on running in search of something they too,
once knew.
I will learn to love the way the day loves clarity
without any blindness from the night.
And soon my prince, you'll be my warrior,
my caesar and my knight.
I will be unexpected, and put my worries to the side.
I will love eternally,
anxious and undisguised.
I will be the color of love,
deeply entrenched with roots of red wine.
And better to wait and know
Then realize and know
your love,
was never really true to mine.
