Tunnel of Love

roll up, roll up

shouts life

as you excitedly queue

to enter the tunnel of love

what beckons

what awaits

so much excitement



the yawning future

sucks you in

darkness beckons, engulfs

holding on tight to each other

and our dreams

forevermore


distant lights approach

eager anticipation unfolds

what awaits

love, eternal happiness

for evermore

……

pain, longing, separation

forevermore

…..

patiently, silently

we await

the darkness slowly lifts
