CONTEMPT By Alero Ajems

Written by Editor

Have we become so familiar?
Has our stirrings gotten so usual?
Does the value we place in our needs become worthless?
Have we degraded to absolutely nothing?

Hold onto me my love,
Let me hold onto you my love.
Breathe peace to my soul,
And let my calm bring you joy.

Let us revisit together our jolly good days,
Days when the pleasures were of discovering each other.
The wants and needs of our lives all we valued,
Our choices regarded whole.

Should I look forward to your coming again?
Will you hope for my laughter in season?
Are the ties that bind ‘re-knotable’?
Will we scale these storms?
