romancing words yet again

romancing words
i lovingly fondle them
as if they were pleasing
surfaces of my favorite
old stone from Ireland
that I fondly pocket carry
giddy joy and love I’ve
spilt once too am
mastering art of containment
as ones I wish to indulge court
are way too young..alas villain
age disallows further tarry…
entering inner sanctuary
I make peace with past laments
laying to rest pet peeves’ torment
squaring off life dealt equations
avowing to be sufficient unto self
for final verse : untethering my soul …
