Poem - As Endless

The poem “An Endless” was inspired by the quote found on Tumbr: “You are slowly receding from my memory like a dust drifting into the wind. I shall write you tonight. For this is how I will remember us. This is how we would grow infinite. –J.DG”

As Endless

I'll write you down before we fade
note our love before it is lost
scattered in the wind of time
like dust drifting in the breeze
memories only in ink's breath
whispered to page by move of hand
pen to paper to seal the tomb
forever resting there to live

if only this were enough
to hold the moment against the tide
surging from the ocean's span
toppling castles built from hearts
a mile deep and a thousand wide
with only words as an island
above the span of forever more
a love of two interred to words

the infinite is our womb
our joining a mote adrift
yet in the teeth of the gale
above the depths fathoms deep
lettered in my hopeful script
cast before we are swept
tossed by gusts or drown by waves
as endless our passions feel.
