Futile Denial

love has taken wing

fluttered first

frissons of desire

flickers of delight

fire licks and flits

roars and in the flames

births another kind of love

born in pain

then glory held to breast

a mother’s love

father’s adoration

family bound until death

though bonds may break

souls suffer from the loss

die to keep it

kill to lose it

the need, the want

unbidden but fundamental

cannot be denied
