Not Now,

avoiding
deceiving
forcing

why not now,
Love?

did you ignore this small plea
in the blue?

did you find my resting place,
love?

I ll see you tomorrow,
but you won t be there,
hidden away from the wind.

did you find yourself,
love?

why
not
yet?

can you not look
into the eyes
of the long dead?

forgive the wrongs
told of long ago?

why not now,
love?

still angry?
still afraid?
still alone,
love?

not now,
love,
someone is here
for you,
if your willing
for it to be Now.
