Salvation - Poem by James Casey


A foot from the fall and feeling it all
Forging my regenerated soul
A gentle word there and she's unaware
It's with her that I will unfold

For too long now I've had a scowl
Consuming me night and day
My heart and mind carried a growl
All were doomed if anyone got in my way

Wrapped in her arms with velvety charms
Her satin voice now breathing deep
A whisper in my ear…now she's near
Her chestnut locks on my shoulders creep

I have this dream, is she all that she seems?
To a heart that is bared red in bloom
Bright beauty blushes while my head rushes
With all my fiery thoughts consumed

And ruby lips part to swallow my heart
Whole and beating still
She says, "How long? Till forever is gone? "
And I say, "Yes, yes…I will."

Two years later I presented her a box
That carried the glitter of my hearts content
She agreed with me it's as it should be
And our love still continues it's ascent
