“If She Truly Loved Me”
By Madison Taylor
30th December 2008

May be a poem
May be prose
Haven’t decided
What I’m writing yet
It will be about love
It will be about her

I can feel the pain
Of missing her
Wanting her arms
To surround me
Even in my fantasy
She quickly pulls away

In reverse reflection
Her hands reach toward me
She touches my face
Our eyes connect in vision
In a moment broken
Safeness returns

The small hesitation
Drives my mind to sight
Seeing her lightly
Brush back my hair
I know it is short
And her touch a gesture

Her fingertips
Caress the edges
Toward the way
We could be
If she truly loved me
And freedom were free

“Doorway to a Place of Enchantment”

“Creating is having the courage
to allow the seer into the private
moments of our imaginative lives.”
