Today I have Do You Remember by a favourite artist of mine, Ane Brun.

This song inspired the following poem.

Belongs Between Us

.

Do you remember

when we fought past twilight

then through till midnight

and wept beyond the day, which

made our past a putrid patch thereof,

tainting the peachy warmth of our love?

.

What happened, then?

We allowed fear to come between us

like a bubble of pain; screaming, crying and pushing.

When only my fingers merging with yours,

belongs between us.

.

Yet, when we first met

through our mutual friend,

and talked till nights end

and laughed beyond that night, and

our future seemed a pure patch of hope

igniting the peachy warmth of love.

.

So what happens, now?

We allow warmth return between us

like a bubble of calm; moving, humming and soothing.

Along with my future, singing with yours

our song, between us

  2. Zoe stole my favorite line! Hmph! Seriously, that line about the merging fingers is arresting…loved it! I also liked the peachy warmth of love…I’m not sure why…probably the fuzz…but I think of peaches as warm and comforting. Very nice.

  3. “When only my fingers merging with yours,
    belongs between us.” Loved this line, too!

    I also liked the contrast with repetition of stanzas 2 and 4.

    Lovely poem. Thank you. xoA
