More Lost

Had she been a pianist

he might have crushed her fingers.

Had she been a painter

he could have left her blind.

Or were she a poet

he would have taken her tongue.


But she was none of these.

She was a lover  

and he need only

to break her heart.


A poet who cannot speak,

a painter who cannot see,

a musician who cannot perform;

none more lost 

than the lover

who can no longer love.

Thanks. It came pretty quickly, while driving down the interstate. Guess I need to do more driving.

I like your style. Your language is clean, efficient, and allows for the silence necessary in good poetry. Good work.
