A night in August

by Jennifer L Banks

I sit back and wonder, forever thinking.
Thinking of the past we shared, eyes blinking.
Tears form and thy heart is dipped in blue.
I'm not sure I like this top floor view.

New love, old love I ask you; where do I fit in?
What the future holds and what you've said, I grin.
Yet still, My maddening thoughts so fragile and thin.
I fear some things, our future and what's crept in.
Forever thine, forever mine, forever ours, I say
Hoping the madness will all go away.
A peaceful kiss will strengthen my way
that I hold onto for another day.
I made a promise to you to not go away.

I wouldn't leave you, I have vowed
and I repeat it with my jealous head bowed.
Keep busy I remind myself, looking out very vast
If you miss him, do not dwell on things
Concierge of my past.

Jealousy, my dreaded companion,
A shameful void and sword invested canyon.
Past lesson learned, not forgotten.
I hope this love does not go rotten.
My fears are big and fully itching
too many thoughts are slowly inching.
Into this mind of random bitching
In sync I say as I toss and turn
Don't let this one burn.

Jennifer, the flow of this is impeccable and the word choice absolutely amazing. Nicely done.
