Love Poem: Ask Me Again

Ask Me Again

Ask me again when I can heed

As doubting your repentance

brings thoughts on fire

From sustaining love

as a food sourced need

To contemplating forgiveness,

when all looks dire

Suppressing all longings,

to deaden the sound

of conflicting emotions

making my head spin around

Ask me again when I can heed

in hoping felicity to be intact

Trusting to go where you lead

True hearts need constancy

so love can react.

In strengthened resolve

your pleas I heed

Love's ardent urgings 

winging their way

Remembering not commonplace

but love grown from seed

Your reiterating promises

never again to stray.
