I Could Write

I could write in prose, I could leave my heart out,

but the language of my soul is love poetry.


I could separate nature from my words, exclude my images,

but the light within comes out in my lenses as photography.


I could pretend I don’t see you in these frames, don’t feel you in the imagery,

but you are part of me whether or not I want you to be–my heart’s favorite melody


and simultaneously, my soul’s greatest lament for what we will never be.

I could hide these words and images, or let my soul freely sing.
