Last Drop Of Love

Insistent, yet gentle and knowing,
Fingers of Spring
Break open the stale shell,
Long overdue to blossom.
Insistent,
Petals of your soul
Reach out to me
With a thirst to be quenched.
But after a grey and desolate winter
That lasted too many years
My heart,
Once alive and vibrant
As a mountain brook
Long since turned to rock
A hard and beautiful Moon Stone,
That’s all I have left to offer.
Let me carve it out.
I will squeeze, crush and crumble it
Between the palms of my hands,
To get to that last drop of Love.
(for even rocks must store inside
a tiny bit of the promise of life
at their core)
Careful not to spill
I will give you all that is left
In my final attempt
To satiate your soul,
Parched for affection.
 
Knowing it will not be enough.
