Read Poem: a collapse. by gabriel edwards

lights flashed through the car window
illuminating your face, even for a brief moment
your beauty shined brighter
than any luminous entity
that could have made itself present
through that car window
on that very night

rob scallon was playing through the stereo
the song happened to be called
“a collapse”
i think of it as
a collapse of skewed views
of previous opinions
on what love really is
a collapse of fear
pressure
doubt
pain
instead, it shall be a rise
a rise of trust
happiness
pleasure
strength
safety
love.
my love for you doesn’t fade
it will always be present
just like the lights flashing through the car window
on that very night
on your very face
with such a pretty smile
