Breaking

by Clara Mae Gregory

in the spirit of love

i waded in the pools

both shallow and deep

i floated on the seas

where lustful transgressions drown

i have walked on the shores

inside all the love poems

where only fantasies

can entwine

the monograms

carved on a tree

for forbidden lovers

hidden in reality

i have languished from the secrets

poured into lakes of silence

where the whispers freeze

into smooth gray slate

turning my spirit

into pellets of sleet

that ripples the glass

breaking

the serenity

Your description the meandering precarious path of love and its exigencies touches on memories I thought I had forgotten. You expresses the way love or its abandonment can break and harm. Thanks.
