Can it be enough?

Can it be enough
that we walk sometimes
down this road together;
must we find the path
no one has tread
in a million years,
where the cold stones yearn,
still wrapped in the echoes
of that last footfall.

Can it be enough
that we don’t speak of this love,
speak of us;
should we find the words
unsaid by a million books,
their weary pages,
rustling in vain
against the tired lips of lovers.

Can it be enough
that we just had
one moment together;
must there be forever,
must someone know,
must we claim a life
by a million others.

  1. Sometimes it must be enough – and then, I have found, it can be. At least that is so with fleeting encounters; not great in an ongoing relationship, however.


  2. Thought provoking . My interpretation is of the crippling rules and expectations we have placed on us to conform.Millions make the rules. Break them then be prepared for consequences.Good poem.

  3. Ah. It works well if both feel this way… otherwise well, it is often the makings of many a novel and movie and many a late night LONG phone call between girlfriends. (my experience boys don’t really share heartbreak and such things like girls often do)

    I like the way you shape it here with the question “can it be enough” – obviously it is for you.
