LONELY WALK

If I could cry a million black 
seas
I would at least drown and 
sink away
From this tree of forbidden 
fruits
Bearing hope but sharing 
pain.
Turning away does not blind 
the mind's eye
Swimming a sea does not 
bleach my black 
heart
So here I stand weeping by 
your door
Even after a hundred 
hatchet blows.
The contempt and hate you 
spare me
Are real extreme yet to live 
alone I fear 
So I would rather drown by 
you
Than take the lonely walk to 
my waiting 
tomb.
