Exchange

The earth alone our witness, we uttered silent love

But she could not hold what we ourselves could not sustain

We exchanged hearts and promptly lost our vows.

We exchanged words and my heart has forsaken me

It recalls the pulsing of your blood through its veins

And my lips cannot forget the shape of love.

Oh that the earth would speak,

That she would assure us our vows are not utterly defiled

That she would give us reason to reconcile

And we could converge and renew our forgotten exchange.
