Overwhelming Doubt

Sat, 01/25/2014 - 13:20 -- eleord


Can we make a date;

can we make a date for life;

can we make a date for summer swings

and long soft snowy nights;

Can we make a date?


for dreams:

for songs:

for hair too long

silky down my bare back.



there is a schedule,

a pre-set plan to follow

so can I make a date for love

or will I always be so hollow?


Can I make a date?

Should I make a date with Death,

or will she come

all by herself.
