Dance of Forgiveness

This coldness between a woman and man
when one heart carries the guilt of a deed
and the other recalls where it began
so both are heartbroken and left to bleed
while each in silence weep alone and grieve.

When does the dance of forgiveness begin
for neither are without some mortal sins
Is it trembling yearning to kiss sweet lips
and the craving to feel skin upon skin
Then love overcomes and anger’s eclipsed.

  1. I love the mixture of hopefulness, passion, and despair in your poem, Linda. Your writing is perceptive and intense simultaneously: ”love overcomes and anger’s eclipsed.”👏✨
