Yesterday’s Love

We were the youngest of lovers

Crossing the threshold of desire

Impatient and heated

Souls burning with the fires of youth

Bathing in the sureness of immortality

I shook my fists at the world

Then hid inside you for refuge

Sanctuary from an uncaring world

Now I am ancient

Shadows of crosses dull my eyes

So many years have slid past

Since first we touched each other’s hearts

Our young love still consumes my thoughts

Fills my passions

As if it were but yesterday

    We were so young. Facing the world together. Never knowing where our lives might lead and not really caring. Together we have been invincible. As our bodies grow old, our love continues to wrap around us and draw us ever closer and will never die.
