An Open Wound

An Open Wound

Adam had an argument
with Eve one day
so she ran away
for a little while
God noticed his son
without a smile

WHAT BOTHERS YOU
MY LITTLE CHILD
OR WOULD YOU
HAVE YOUR FATHER
GUESS

excuse me Lord
but i must confess
this emptiness
inside my chest
that fills me
since my lover left

can you explain
what i can’t express

WELL

YES

IT APPEARS THAT SHE’S
A PART OF YOU

DON’T YOU KNOW
YOU HAVE THAT SCAR
AS PROOF

I LEFT IT THERE
TO BE HARD ON YOU

Adam glanced down
at the mark confused
and pondered
what he’d said

how could you leave
me so exposed
what were you thinking
in your head

I WAS MERELY REACHING
FOR YOUR HEART
BUT GRABBED A RIB
INSTEAD

…Before you is a love story, told in a poetic tone. Open it, and have your heart broken (or you can order a hard copy and use it as a paperweight). Either way, enjoy! Enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.
