Free-Fall Love

by Gregg Dotoli

Jomeo and Ruliet
dizzying heart-pumping elation
junkie-like want
schemes, dreams and uncut hope
anything to sustain this dream-high
the weakening love-dam
leaks fragile rapture
as time deals a nagging feeling
reminding all lovers
talk lessens, kisses diminish, moons fade
hastening that trip to normal
old feelings
crash in a hole
where melted hearts
now freeze and shatter on impact
creating a blinding mountain of red crystal.
