Since Love Embraced Me--By John Polselli--United States

Since Love Embraced Me

What have I become since love embraced me?
More an ocean than a reservoir,
A chalice that is lifted, or a key
That full unfastens the sweet mystery you are.
How steep the moon climbs silent in the sky,
Yet neither distance nor the endless sweep of space
Shall wrest you from my heart or nullify
The nectar of the dawn that is your face.
We run in laughter down the narrow trail
While holding hands, as sunlight, shedding gold
Upon the grass, a secret realm unveils
In which we shall not languish or grow old,
But live forever in the land above
Within each other’s arms, contented and in love.

John Polselli’s poetry has been published in many literary journals and is the recipient of several Editor’s Choice Awards. As a poet, John enjoys composing in all traditional forms including free verse as well as inventing his own.
