it may not always be so;  (after ee cummings )

it may not always be so; these stone
walls lining castle ruins, where these
fortresses of our heart seem invincible-  
in love, their towering turrets a standard’s  
base upon these dusty ramparts-    
witnessing architecture wed landscape-  
supporting our unyielding faith.  
   
it may not always be so; victors    
come and go; wars fought and lost-  
as much as they are won; should    
another champion capture your heart    
as I myself have done, your attention    
a profession of new-found love-    
then, shall it be for you, cathedral’d    
gowns and proclamations of vows-    
   
But, for me, a letting go; and, such  
funerary sounds hastening escape    
to distant lands; broken heart intact.    
~
