NaPoWriMo2017 - EVER YOURS, B - GloPoWriMo2017 - Day 16

Ever Yours, B.

He heard her through her work 
the promise of sunshine in a storm 
and he began to love her 
in letters 

She had been with him 
alone in her room 
in his works 
and now his lines 
embraced her 

She hesitated at his ink’s intensity 
for she knew her pages 
would not be many 

He did not care the amount 
as long as the book of their life 
was written full 
no margins 

So they left her invalid’s tomb 
and her father 
who wanted devotion to death 
and ran to wine and warmth 
their future’s poetry

and the book "The Love Letters Of Elizabeth Barrett & Robert Browning".
