She Had a Reason

Venus
She had a reason to love

more years had passed when she saw him
she held him in her dreams
through bouts of doubt
when she could barely understand
the blows
but she saw him
in her dreams
and held him as star
when they threw her out
of the closed circle of queens to
his majesty
her forbidden dreams
roamed the wilds
of her heart
abandoned and reviled
 
He stood at the edge
a beacon of constant hope
and one day in the silence of the morning dew
A soft touch
strong arms around her tired limbs
he carried her across the threshold
to another existence
and another life.

    You’ve put forth a dream in a way I could almost taste Biola.
