More Love

Come away with me
I will let you be
Whoever you wish to be

He doesn’t love you
Who would limit you
To who you are now

He does not love you
Who would have you
All to himself

That is not love
But the need of love
As if you are a fetish

Come away with me
And I will let you love
Whomever you want to love

Because I love
That you want
More than just me

It would be enough
To know
You loved yourself best

It would be enough
To know
Who you loved most, next

Occluded ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #135

Oh the grandiosity
Of mountain ranges
Under cloudless skies

Though here demurred
Occluding smoke
Smothers valley’s depth and scale

Still, upon a closer look
The trees, a ridge
A jagged line

And then another
Slight serrated edge
The third and fourth both smoother still

So scale restored
I can imagine depth, at least
As this choking smoke occludes my breath
