A Simple Question About a Complex Subject: LOVE....[Questioning a past lover; Short]


As Valentine's Day does near approach,
I dare this touchy subject to broach.
Have you any love left,
or of that are bereft?
Fear not on my feelings to encroach.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

it was nearly V.Day in New York State. i may have actually sent this note to the woman i lived with for a few months the year before. maybe i was just playing with poetry and feelings. lucky for me i don't get too emotional when i 'lose' or 'get rid of' a 'love'. of course the 'woman' doesn't always appreciate that lack of emotion. sorry. there was always a good enough reason for one of us to call it quits. three divorces.

    I love short ones that nail it to the wall. Nice rhythm too. Pleasure to meet you. Larry says you're not too bad of a guy. We'll see about that. (Report) Reply

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
