Free Love Poem or Friendship Poem
Dance with me inside a dream
Where red-tipped shadows play.
Sit with me beside a stream
Where silver birches sway
In that same breeze that breathes across
Black jagged mountain rock,
But if you feel compelled to tell
Me promises, don't talk.
Lie with me beneath the sky
While midnight wears away,
Watching shooting stars fly by...
Don't promise me you'll stay.
You speak to me of loyalty.
You say it will not die.
Perhaps you mean no treachery.
Perhaps you do not lie,
But twists in your tomorrows
Or the changes in the air
Can softly sink in sorrows
All the promises you swear...
A promise shines like glass, beneath
The white light of the moon,
And when it breaks, it cuts the heart,
And blood pours from the wound.
So seal your lips, and do not say
The words I've heard before --
That you will never go away...
For I can bear no more.
And if you cast me, like a cloak
Of diamond-woven light,
Into the boundless black expanse
Of the eternal night,
And eons later, if you find
And, in the dark, retrieve me,
This will be your choice. Not mine.
Don't say you'll never leave me.
