Newport Sunset


Days  begin to fade away
Newport sunset lingers
dock begins to sway
sentimental thoughts
make my heart ache
but not
with the intensity
as before
images seem so fresh
I can reach out
and touch…
there is this very fine line
between love
and guilt
wrapped so neatly
in metaphors
our lives meshed together
and tore apart
humanity doesn’t hold a candle
to commitment and vows
we cling to the warmth
of tradition and familiarity ~
