Explodes The Earth Now - Poem by Patti Masterman
Explodes the earth now; seams ripping lose:
Secrets too big, too large to reveal,
Of secret love letters, and the affairs,
Sobs in the wind, caught on a branch
Weeping in pillows; taking a chance,
Eyes watching others, through knotholes in fences;
Long breathy distances, covered in wishes,
Dreaming of arms; the adulterous kisses.
Everything to capacity, with 'I love you's'
Not one object escape passion's blind truths.
If love's a beauty; then we're her blemish;
Lips murmuring prayer, to the mirror image
Imagined other; of faint lipstick ovals
And handkerchiefs sprayed with perfume notes, noble
Handwritten sheets, bound hair clippings,
Toasts to another's arms; their wines, sipping:
Moments stolen out of time, never begrudged;
If we're not in love, then we're just not happy-
And if we're not in misery, it's not really love.
