Faith Under Fire Poem by Dawn Novus

Faith Under Fire

Rating: 5.0


There a sky deep and dark

And eternity it reaches into my thoughts

And in you, my faith in love burns on

On for the song with no end

I see you, a strangers face

In the lonely waning sea tides this night

So that if I were to lose these eyes of mine

I know I would find you

By the veins of your love meridian lines

The pulse of your yellow gold soul

A beacon to draw me to you, my Marco Polo

Touches me so deep, touches me so deep

And my faith in love burns on

Burns on like a song

Calibrating in constant orbit of soft resplendent eyes

I search my edges to find you rounded in the corners

And spiteful thorns have taken to prefer a smooth stem

And grateful my hands lifting roses with no pain added

This is why my faith in love burns on

Burns on like a song

Conveying what my faith is built upon

It is a meticulous and beautiful unrelenting attention

It is a pure and unadulterated feeling of connection

A babble of sweet murmurings in love, always

Just under the way of sound it plays

Keeping me steady on and strong

I have no idea how to behold a view so imperative to me

And so, this is why love, this is why

My faith in love burns on

This is some unusually terrific and poetically magnificent way to explain and feel love. This poem masterfully paints your feelings , rich, powerful but also soft and beautiful like the Roses you so graciously describe, 'And gratefully my hands lifting roses with no pain added' This work is deeply submerged in poetical delight. and rightly appreciated.

Hi Dawn, Wonderful poem on love. The pure, unadulterated, uninhibited feeling... A babble of sweet murmurings in love, always Just under the way of sound it plays Keeping me steady on and strong I have no idea how to behold a view so imperative to me Beautifully rendered.
