NO ANSWERS - a new poem appearing in Phases - Redwood Writers 2023 Poetry Collection

 Buy Phases on Amazon


Why did you break it off?

 I was drunk on life.

It was the times.

Did you ever love me?

As much as I could.

I was fickle.

But why wasn’t I enough?

Greener pastures,

If not as sweet.

Did I know the others?

A few from my past,

and the future

Might we have worked it out?

I loved you, but still,

I wasn’t ready

What did you want from me?

You were a rare wine.

A sip, a taste

Yet, you drank deeply?

We drank and had fun.

Lost in the dark

And wrong for each other?

Not right, but still close.

Forever friends
