The Love Crusade

The Love Crusade

There is always a path strewn with side-posts.
I am collecting the road markers and the highway attractions.

I hurdle over the death troughs and the broken bones,
but I am tired of clearing the path.

I will not conquer.
I will not slay.
I will not lie.

I am largehearted,
but not large.

(c) Umansky 2015

by Leah Umansky

I will herald my ghosts

I will braid our pasts

I will unlid secrets

I will forest bruises

I will strange love

I will cabinet the lies

I will haunch the hurt

I will expunge order

I will temper the liked

I will pale the bad

I will away the soiled

I will hush the undone

I will stab the fault

I will dream the lie

I will sweet the love

I will still the brood

I will play the stars

I will pronounce the naked

I will index chance

I will darling the crookt

I will soldier the dreams

I will pageant the breaks

I will cycle the jitters

I will sing the caring

I will belly the upset

I will feast comfort

I will turn the certain

I will empty the dark

I will flame the barbarous

I will shun the ills

I will repine…
