Love Poem Written After Staring at the Sun by Richard LeDue

Richard LeDue | April 22nd, 2024 | poetry | No Comments


If you were a burning building,
I would run in,
have my skin dance with your flames,
while others take swimming lessons
and worry if they bought the best
brand of sunscreen.

Even if the dead float better than the living,
they are sunk by matches
that need living fingers to ignite them,
so we shouldn’t overthink the heat,
just let it rain down us,
quenching a thirst too many deny.
