Hearts On The Run

The power of poetry

to drive away love

A surrogate impostor

indentured above

Whether spoken or written

its message the same

All feelings imprisoned

in words that explain


When waxing poetic

the birds and the trees

Laughing not with you

but at you it seems

Intention enamored

from rhyme to blank verse

With hearts on the run

—and heaven to curse


(Bryn Mawr Pennsylvania: May, 2023)
