A Stolen Season

is our love a stolen season?
an Indian Summer of passion and fire
is it just a brief respite from winter's icy chill?
will the blossoms and fruit of our desire
that lay so heavy upon the branches of the love we've made
fade in the coming grey, storm laden days ahead?
will the warm fragrant breezes that caress our senses
will they, will they even now, rip the tender spring growth
between you and I, to tattered shreds
with the raking fingers of it's winter twin?

it aches my heart, to fear that our love
will flicker and die, like the autumn sun
and that the splendor of the sun-filled days
will wither away in my mind
like the leaves outside my window
and fall, drifting to the floor of my mind
like some happy illusion
like some forgotten season of years past
a brief stint in the chambers of time
where the clock had stopped
where she could touch us not with her endless count
as we forced back the dawn
and held it captive with tears and protest
unwilling for our stolen season to end
we beseeched the sun to stay her rise
for one more bittersweet hour
while we proclaimed our unending love
bound it firm with passionate kiss
and earnest pledge

my love, if I could, I'd forswear the sun
and hold high the moon in her stead
if I could but keep you near my side
for just a moment more

"With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls; for stony limits cannot hold love out; and what love can do that dares love attempt." ~Romeo and Juliet Act II

Wow!
You have outdone every compliment I can muster with this one. Vivid and powerful as always...the emotion runs deep. Truly remarkable.

Izzy, no one can weave free verse like you do. Another brilliant piece. You are THE woman for all seasons.

I'm sitting here almost in tears. Your words are a lyrical mirror to your longing....

These, especially,

"like some forgotten season of years past
a brief stint in the chambers of time
where the clock had stopped
where she could touch us not with her endless count
as we forced back the dawn
and held it captive with tears and protest
unwilling for our stolen season to end"

.....geez.... i have to read this again... and yet again. Wonderful, Izzy. Truly fine writing.
