from within

This one was clearly in elation

Of having said ‘I love you’.

Caught by the boredom of stagnation,

Its gray suffocating hue –

I jumped off.

**

This one was enthralled

Unable to stay away for a day,

But when the emotional honesty called,

Each kept their truth at bay –

We both jumped off.

**

This one was gripped with fear

Of feelings with no control.

Yes, we both felt it acutely, dear.

I left in your court that ball –

You jumped off.

**

This one could not be touched

In integrity of his persuasion.

Some things are evenly matched,

But in the wrong life location –

We didn’t jump in.

**

This one sliced and burned

Through pretense and illusions of tough.

And the woman slowly learned

The true meaning of soulful love –

I stayed.
