Love: 1998 - 2016 (Part II: She Was...)

By Bud Koenemund

For "Her."

The being who made me invincible,
Yet somehow retained power to destroy
My soul. A spirit irresistible
To mine, her indulgence became my joy.
A muse who inspired so many words;
With eyes that stole my breath, leaving silence.
Alpha and omega – creating worlds
In the mind, even while corrupting sense.
That living Venus; goddess who revealed
The heavens to which emotion can soar,
And self-doubt creating a battlefield
Within my heart – conflicting love and war.
   If it be obsession, I’ll not defend;
   She lives forever: beginning and end.
