Poem: Ready Or Not

Ready Or Not

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Are we ready as we say we are
You know
Ready for love
Or are we just trying to keep up with the ticks of the clock
Before this moment passes our prime?

Our years are aging
And we've seen many days as one
Yet love has never been discussed
Only tossed around in the night hours of lust

We are at this time inseparable
We are in many ways compatible
But is that enough
To include forever in our Will?

Maybe if we try it
We might like it
But love isn't a toy
That can be taken down to play with
Then put away once bored of it

Let's say we can
And we become that higher level of commitment
Will storms rain out our days from seeing tomorrows
Or will we settle our score peacefully
To become stronger in our bond as before

Are we really ready as we say we are
Or are we just settling for time's sake
Because we don't want to be left alone in this world unloved
