One for one – then one for all.

We move
From writing for one
To writing for all…
Transcending…
From loving one to loving all.
It is a slow realization…
Our life’s stagnation…
Holding our feelings
Too close to our chest…
As we search only…
For the one, we feel
Would be best,
To satisfy our needs…
With willful speed…
Struggling …
To keep our combined flames,
Alive…
Preserving the favors…
Special treatments…
We feel we deserve…
Special to ourselves…
As the king and queen,
Of our hive.
We forget…
The promise we made
To each other,
So long ago.
Before, life got busy,
Back when our kisses,
Were slow…
Our love, our Godspeed,
Was consumed
Like all else
By our personal
Need.
Please just go…
No – don’t go!
Please just go.
No – go.
Go until
We want to stay,
Maybe never,
We’ve spent our day.
I will always love you.
