YOU HAVE TO DECIDE #poetry by jay

But you mean so much to me,

honestly,

I find comfort in your touch,

in your words,

don’t forget to laugh

and hold the silent meaning 

of our gaze, still, close 

to your breast,

and take care of yourself

your well-being is 

important to me

you must never forget

how much we clawed

to get to this moment, where

we found each other by chance

and by lust,

we lay here, bare- open- fragile

sullen from our love,

beaten by our journey,

I am yours

and, you have to decide

if you too,

will be yours,

not mine.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
