Will love hold, tight-roped between tears
Certain of storm, not wanting loss
Howling to horizon’s abyss, heaving from despair?
Will love hold, memoried to casual harbours—
And we were happy for a while, and forgot
Tomorrow coming, and coordinates we couldn’t
Will love hold, when all is broken
And merciful tides of amnesia
cradle us till we wake?
