Love It Or Leave It - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Love It Or Leave It
Date: February 2,2011

Come to me forever, love
Or entice me, nevermore
There is no in-between, my dear
The ocean meets the shore

I forsake the useless drivel
If barren of your desire
And decline the bone dry kisses
From lips devoid of fire

I shan't extend a tender hand
When thy heart in greed must hide
Nor will I lie beneath your weight
When my heart is denied

I'll ignore the whispering winds
When smoke obscures my view
And nevermore to search in vain
For stars that shine of you

My breath will cease to speak thy name
Yet inked upon the rhyme
Is passion flaming from the heart
That burns of love sublime

I'll offer firm resistance
To hold my wolves at bay
And turn with a conviction
That flattery cannot sway

I'll beg not for affection
Or pout when you decline
I'll simply turn my heart away
And leave the fire behind

So come to me forever, love
Or free me from this snare
A decade of indecisiveness
Is more than what is fair
