The Last Date

March 27, 2018

On a brisk fall night
the wind whips across
the lake. Leaves sway off
trees and fill the street.
My heart suddenly screams.       


My lips taste bitter
as the word “Deport”
climbs out of my mouth.
War scenes fill my mind.
My heart suddenly screams.

Steaming, sorrowful
tears weep down her face.
Her soft heart shrinks at
  “Immediately.”
My heart suddenly screams.


I proclaim my love
down Milwaukee Street.
Lights fill the starry
sky,  footprints clatter.
My heart suddenly screams.


We will win this war
together. My heart
drags me to the ground.
Will you marry me?
My heart suddenly screams.
