Love Poems
by Rochelle Mass


I could have
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lovers teach each other to love
to pulse and ache
spring each from
the other's loin.

I could have loved you
taught you
wrapped you in my skirts

taken you to my breast
till you were strong enough
to teach me who I was.
 
 
 

High Noon
~~~~~~~
High noon beats
when you have loved me

I am by the river with you
lowered into the gorge
washed of all others

High noon beats
where you were
the alter is clean

I wait for the shy dawn
to make way for
the next high noon.
 
 

Like a runner flees the starting line
~~~~~~~~
I have birthed a new self.
You have fathered me
We are parents
to the woman I am.

Sometimes I think no woman
is more than I.
I've left the girl I was
like a runner flees the starting line. >
 
 

Muted pyramids
~~~~~~~~
They heap stones here
into muted pyramids
a sign for meetings
in round stones

merge them into messages
cobble the way
till I go where I must
till I meet you.

A sign with no words
I can read
in the face
of the moon.
 
 

Rising to the surface
~~~~~~~~
My body
surfaces
rises

loving has
skimmed
it all away.

...
