Shaping Lives

A Gentle Embrace

A simple word
Can last a lifetime
In the briefest second

Living forever
In an alluring glance
Whispered touch of lips
Or a gentle embrace

Want and desire
Defining moments
Defining boundaries
Shaping lives

My heart soars
My heart sinks
That is what love is
Polar aspects
Of emotional turmoil
Capturing us all
Binding some
Severing others
