Poetry - In Love

A poem by Simon Nguyen
Calling it a date but please do not come.

I’ll be mad – for just a little while.

If you have to leave,

proceed with full speed.

Love is only beautiful

in its infancy.

Life loses its glitters

when promises kept

and vows realized.

~

Calling it a date but please do not come.

My heart will ache – just a little bit.

In your absence,

my soul is free to roam the empty park

and the cigarette lives to see its demise.

I ponder:

Will she come tomorrow?
