Love’s Embrace


With arms stretched wide
she etched out a semblance
of love, kindness and respect
hoping it will abide.

The conquest of affection is,
Hoping she will see you,
Hoping she will smile,
Hoping she will acknowledge
your mere existence,
in fear of rejection

When she does reciprocates
Fearing her past mistakes
She throws caution to the wind
And placates her conquest
With Love’s embrace.

With renewed hope,
a happy life is forged

Little did he know,
once you capture
the object of your affections,
therein lies the hard part.
To connect, to reassure,
to appease, to understand,
to Accept and to Trust.

Will the promise of
love’s embrace blossom or
Will it wane out of scope?
