The Poetry of Rory


Make Up Sex
(a villanelle)




He says to her, “No one will ever love you like I do”
Words spoken to salvage a love that once appeared hopeless
Deep in her heart she wants to give them another chance

Were he to do it all over again, still she would be the one he would choose
If only their visions would coincide and they shared the same focus
He says to her,“no one will ever love you like I do”

Forever etched in his mind, her smile, the scent of her favorite perfume
She recognizes although there have been mistakes, apparent was his devotion
Deep in her heart she wants to give them another chance

Willing to do whatever it takes to once again prove
Without her being there, this life would be atrocious
He says to her, “no one will ever love you like I do”

Her emotions have run rampant knowing only his touch will soothe
Listening to her intuition and fighting against her notions
Deep in her heart she wants to give them another chance

Forgiveness stands before them, heartbeats resounding, clothing slowly removed
When their bodies connect, anger, fear, doubt will all dissipate into one motion
He says to her, “no one will ever love you like I do”
Deep in her heart she wants to give them another chance
