The Truth. A poem.

What would I do
if you belonged to another?
No hanging tree exists
that could free my heart
from your beloved tether.
Would I drown myself
in the incumbent surf,
or throw myself
from the weary heights,
dash all my hopes and dreams
with vertigo and a somnolent end?
Why am I frozen here,
the icy curlicues surrounding me
and choking by degrees
until I can move no more?
Speak to me, and I will answer
truthfully.

The All or the Nothing is my first book of poetry, and at just $5.99 for 62 poems, that’s less than 10 cents a poem! To find out how to get a copy, click here.
