Love Song

Standard

“How can I keep my soul in me
So that it doesn’t touch your soul?
How can I raise it high enough,
Past you, to other things?

I would like to shelter it,
Among remote lost objects,
In some dark and silent place
That doesn’t resonate when
Your depths resound.

Yet everything that touches us,
Me and you,
Takes us together like a
Violin’s bow.
Which draws one voice out of two
Separate strings.

Upon what instrument
Are we two spanned?
And what musician
Holds us in his hand?
Oh sweetest song”

What is it that draws me to you?
Did I not notice
That moment you slipped a string
Around my rib?
Just below my breast
and trembling heart
Slowly
You pull me in
Around that curled finger
And just as you graze my skin,
Setting fire to all denial,
Roughly I’m flung to the wind

You didn’t notice the extra string
And so
Slowly
I pull you in
Oh, the symphonies I’ll create
With the strings of passion
Connecting you and I.

-LM Jones
