Favorite Quote:
“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.” —James Michener

With a wish &a grin,
We step into sin,

I'll live in your arms
'til forever grows old,
We'll live this dear love
though our story's untold,

Secrets we kept
as love we made,
Embarking upon
a sweet love crusade,

Slipping into a dream
that you've given me,
Believing that shackles
can set our souls free,

We'll make this last
with hope &assurance,
patience, commitment,
&God's gift of endurance,

Not living a lie
Just living a dream,
Maybe this is all part of
precious Fate's scheme,

Wrapped up in heaven
to hide from the cold,
I'll live in your arms
'til forever grows old.

The author's comments:
One of my favourite quotes of all time: "There's nothing more freeing than the shackles of love" (Emma Racine deFleur). This inspired my poem, along with personal circumstances.
