Woven Connection – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” Robert Frost

Woven Connection

Sweetness and terror push against each other
in warm waves of delicious intense confusion 
that wave my heart about in giddying flourishes,
catapulting me senseless in unexpected feelings,
leaving me so light I began to float away from you,
until you reached out and wove our fingers together
in a constancy of connection that holds me still.

  1. A relationship is always a conflict of interests, a loosely woven connection.
    But a wonderful one. Thank you for this lovely poem, Paul! xx Michael
