One Flesh- A Poem on love, hurt, and faith

One Flesh

Keep the flowers on the vine

Wait through the winter

the sun comes out in time

Love is sacrificial

Bodies on the pyre

What isn’t swept away with water

gets purified with fire

One Flesh

Like the sinews connecting

flesh to the bone

Keep me in your clutches

so you never feel alone

In the future I’ll be waiting

like the promises unkept

One flesh, my life and soul

until my death
