Plateau of Love

by Trina Williams-Emigh

Once a passion
Seldom sought
Left to wonder
Consumed by aught
Thought I found a love
Truly unfettered
Lost to all
No one bettered
Despite-my trembling
At his feet
He only offered-that
Which was incomplete
Cast me aside 
My heart broken
Hid in safety
Pain unspoken
Gathered dust
Within myself
Stored away
Rendered to a shelf
Then appeared a key
From an unexpected source
Accepted the invitation
To a new life’s course
Now, joined together 
By ring and hand
Actually found a love
Willing to expand
So everyday
I sing his praises
For his love
Absolutely amazes
And the one that lost me
I thank so
For the one that found me
Has taken me to a higher plateau
