Are we in love?

Are we in love?

Is this just a silly game? 

One we play with each other?

Are we in love?

And if we are,

why do we keeping hiding it 

from one another?

Crimson displays of violet sunsets

children play in the park

laughter and love is all around us

and yet still we do not trust.

I will hold your hand

but leave your heart

I don’t want to cause you pain.

Maybe one day we will be brave

and hasten to arrive

at this altar built to serve.

Until than though

we shall sit in silence

and wonder…..

are we in love?

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
