For the Poet

.

.........

Not a lament
Not this one
there will be no thoughts here
of callous lovers
lonely evenings
or sterile tears over someone's parting.

.

No talk here
of empty promises
dreary liaisons
mournful trysts.

.

Rather ' choose
that these lines celebrate my sense of self
Intact despite these things
my eagerness to give again
and to hell with the odds.

.

Let this one
revel in my resilience
in my optimism
as ' enter the breach once more
with expectations undiminished
fully expecting that love will one day
be all it can
and should be.

.
