My Poem: Anthology Love Poem Poet to Poet

I wrote this poem when I was taking a poetry class and had become attracted to a fellow student. I imagined our poems published in an anthology on facing pages.

Love Poem
Poet to Poet
Our two poems lie
Face to face
Crisp white sheets of paper
Pressed title to title,
Signiture to signiture.
More than reflections,
They are ourselves,
Stripped naked
And unmasked,
Beautiful and unashamed.
We meet each other
Within a dimension
Where we can't make excuses,
And are unable to lie.
Like old lovers reunited:
Speaking without words,
Touching without hands,
Sharing secrets in silence,
Embracing each other
Beoynd the barriers of "self."
