Long Live Us

Written by Jacob Ibrag

I’m resting on your shoulder, wondering

how this will end. Will we paint each other

with regret? Lines have been crossed, there’s

no going back. You’ve seen a side of me no

one has ever witnessed. Will you cherish it,

or see me as another notch in your belt? In

this moment, we’re one in the same. You are

my king, and I am your queen. Long live

us, till one of us wakes up.

    Relationships, as in life, we all enter the waters not contemplating the ending, but the ending always comes. Always.

  5. Great capture of the mystery of beginnings … curious if poem went looking for image or if image inspired poem? They work beautifully together.
