Sweet Dew Kissed Strawberries - Poem by Jennifer Sol

Perhaps, I’ll escape to a place
Where you love me still
A land of rolling hills
And sweet dew kissed strawberries
The home of lovers lost
Reunited in this dreamland
A place of truth and love
Free to be with you
Oh, bliss it would be
But, evermore I’m jolted
Back to reality
The harsh brutal beast
Wild fur standing on end
A menacing growl
Pierces my ears
It’s white dripping teeth
Sink into my heart
A searing pain
You don’t love me
I trespass on lawns
Choking for moisture
What my eyes see
It’s horror I never
Want to see again
Across the asphalt
Nestled in the grass
You and her
Arms winding like vines
Tightening your hold
Drinking in each other
Burning my eyes
I turn away
It’s too much to bear
A weight pushing
On my shoulders
Brings me to my knees
Salty tears nourish
The wilting grass
Beneath me
I’m pregnant with
Anguished fury
My fists pound
The innocent lawn
Crushing
The thirsty blades
An eerie calm
Overtakes me
A warm hand
On my shoulder
I look up
Through tear filled eyes
An illusion greets me
It’s you
Did I run away again
To the place of dreams
Where lovers lost
Meet again
Bound by no rules
Forever to love
And be loved
Among fields of
Sweet dew kissed
strawberries
