EDITOR

Reading you hurts, feeling

you overwhelming, overpowering,

overtaking my life. Frustrated

like me, you did/do/will not

concede, this potholed journey

incoherent, inscrutable, impossible

to forgive/forget. (Yet) Forgo this

bruised, broken path, I won’t.

Struggling to sail it smooth,

sensible, but succeed I must.

Unable to change you, my choice:

give you up or write you with(in)

my voice. A sin and a crime,

I commit/confess. My defence:

a story beautiful as you are

should be told from my soul.
