His Best Refuge When She Didn’t Care: Romantic ConTEXTing Poetic Lament

August 15, 2012

He’d never understood
Why she
Knowing him,
Liking him,
Desiring him,
Would dangle him,
taunt him,
Tempt him,
And leave him,
Day after day,
Hour by hour
Wanting more.

One word
Responses.
No insight.
No sharing.
No understanding.

He knew she
Was often
Tired;
Busy;
In pain.

He’d seen her through
Those body-wracking torments,
As well as emotional
Worries
And discomforts.

Yet when his heart ached
And his soul cried
And his heart yearned,
his only refuge
Seemed to be
As it always was:
In silent,
dark,
Conversations
With the Infinite
For forever.
