GFU #4

I would accept

what can't be changed  

if I could tell you  

that I think it can  

I would walk away   


let these fingers   

slip through your hands  


I would see   

that our love is a fire  

that no one   

will ever displace  

then kiss you   

on your lips  

smile one last time  

at your pretty face  


and yet not knowing  

what is really there  

inside the light  

inside your eyes  

it crushes

all my hopes  

turns them into  

futile lies  


so tell me   

what you know  

and of the dreams  

you dare not say  

so that I might sleep   

into tomorrow   

longing of a time 

when you'll never go away

Ivan R
Sad, beautiful tones of melancholy.

A powerful love-lament.
