THE UNSPOKEN FOR

 Linda Umans
 

I tango dance with the unspoken for.
Have an endless romance with the unspoken for.
 
To the married but miserably, fulfilled and not
do not look askance at the unspoken for.
 
Consider the possible. Renounce assume.
Drink the vineyards of France with the unspoken for.
 
Flights unimpeded. Unconventional loves.
No end to expanse in the unspoken for.
 
Single singular journeys of body and mind.
So much to entrance in the unspoken for.
 
You harbor a heart that swells and breaks.
The same heartbreak by chance in the unspoken for.
 
Linhelen is a friend to the wild and the risk.
She was born in advance of the unspoken for.
