Monday Poetry Train - Self-Inflicted Wound - 2/11/08

I generally only have enough inspiration for one blog a week, at best. A couple of readers have inspired me to write more. You know who you are. I am not much of a poet. It requires more organized thought than I can muster. But this will have to do.



SELF-INFLICTED WOUND

DID SHE WHISPER, "I LOVE YOU"
AS I HELD HER OH SO TIGHT
OR WAS IT JUST MY LOVE FOR HER
REFLECTED IN THE NIGHT

DID IT COME FROM HER LIPS
OR WAS IT NEVER SAID
DID IT COME FROM HER HEART
OR WAS IT JUST INSIDE MY HEAD

SOMETHING PASSED BETWEEN US
OR AT LEAST IT PASSED THROUGH ME
LOVE I'VE NEVER FELT BEFORE
AND NEVER THOUGHT COULD BE

BUT AM I TRULY IN HER HEART
OR IS SHE JUST IN MINE
FOR LOVE THAT IS NOT SHARED
IS THE MOST PAINFUL KIND
