The Plea

September 9, 2008
By Matthew Palmer, Henryetta, OK

I wish we could just cast aside, the hearsay and pointless fights, and all those weary restless nights, which left me here, now on my knees, with shakings hands I cry a plea. Give to me a second chance, to just go back and set things right, back before the make-believe you had imposed, you did perceive, my words were true, when everything I said to you, had never caused a wasted night, nor silent phones or useless spite? This recent sorrow is just too much; I need you here, “please for tonight?” Lay here with me and let me know with just one kiss that we can grow, so bitter, yet so sweet the taste, with it, our past, we have erased, your lips they speak in silent tongues,
“you tremble, do you know its wrong?” yet still I need to know you’ll stay, that every shadow will fade away, and leave us here, complete and whole, without a bitter voice to show. And when you think about me smile, feel my arms and for a while, think about what made me yours and let the sound of slamming doors grow much more faint until its gone, I do admit that I was wrong and annul the blame I’ve sewn, I’ve tried so hard to end these wars, that we have fought between our souls and if I knew that this could change, and that our thinking can rearrange, We could forget and start again, please set aside our differences. can you feel it? The subtle force that made us strong, a Love sustained and never wrong, it lasted through distance, through doubts and trial, through tears, and anger, and parental denial, and when I held you in my arms, there was no fear, or warning alarms, only the peace of feeling complete, an overwhelming happiness. Perhaps we’ll learn to just forgive, we could move on, and finally live, for you and me and no one else, I give to you, my eternal self.

I Love you more than my own breath,

Forget your anger and my foolishness.

Turn the page, we can renew,

Everything I feel for you,

And your connection, your bond to me,

Will replenish and set us free.
