Since And Again – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Laura is hosting Meeting the Bar with an invitation to choose one of five lines and to invert the line to vertical making each word the beginning of a line for a new poem.

The line I have chosen is “Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part.” from ‘Idea 61’ by Michael Drayton.

“I never want to stop making memories with you.” Pierre Jeanty

Since And Again

Since the first time
there's been no holding back,
no sense of moderation,
help me in my distress,
come, hold me closer, tighter,
let us retire to best of
us in every possible way,
kiss me now with thick passion,
and again, again,
part from me never.
