Lasting Instance (poem)

There in the quiet softness of the night

She calls to me with her familiar song

Enthralling me again to dance along

To share this lasting instance of delight


The instance of a lasting final kiss

There drifting past the ocean of your eyes

Is waiting in a heaven made for this

Far grander than the kiss can realize


Alas so crass a world that won’t prolong

The instances your kisses can ignite

What does it know about two lovers’ plight

Who in each other’s realm do now belong


What is the passion which will set us free

That instance which slips past eternity

There seems to be a theme of lovers' tragedy in the hubs I'm reading today.
