DEATH OF LOVE

    
DEATH OF LOVE

When gazing at my
love-struck eyes
He said
"Romance gags me
Marriage is a business deal
Love is for weaklings"

I
Wasn’t dead
 yet

When
gazing at my garden
He said
"Plant only
Food
Dump
Out the flowers"

I
Wasn’t 
Dead 
yet

When gazing at the moon
He said
"Close all the windows
Seal all the cracks it
saves money"

I
Wasn’t dead 
yet"
 
when
the birdsong faded
in the silence
I crawled away

I
Wasn’t 
Dead Yet.

    thanks for reading and commenting, bl. It is always good to hear that someone can relate to feelings expressed in a gut wrenching poem. And, it is about people not anti- male....and I think you understood that. V.
