Deeper, My Love... - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Since we have met,
And both of us have professed
Our happiness.
There is one thing left,
On this flight we choose to take.
We must be open to our faults...
And forgive heartaches.
We must appreciate flaws,
In our 'awe' we overlooked.
We were then looking to feed desire...
When the fire cooled and left our minds,
And hearts hooked!

I would like to look at it that way!
With the thoughts I have...
And how we have grown from those days!

From looking to feed desire...
With minds and hearts hooked.
We began looking at romance,
As a dance eternity took.
Then we began looking...
At each other,
Like a sister or brother.
Competitors and not friends!
We both noticed that happening...
And I am glad that came to an end.

We have been looking at each other now,
With hopes of always being together...
But along the way we got off track!
We can not go forward
By holding secrets back!
If our love is to stay intact...
We have to unload any baggage,
That might exhaust this flame...
When unpacked by irritation,
And regretful games.

We must not only maintain our love making good!
We must also be good at maintaining it.
And we do.
It's great! It's the best!

We have been looking at each other now,
With hopes of always being together...
Under gold dust weaving into a nest!

It is about to get deeper,
My love...
Deeper inside goes this emotional ride,
This love...
We have to give.
And we hold each other's hands.
Electrified and Synchronized,
Our love we love...
This way that lives.
