Adam Shirley

A Consolation

I smashed all the windows, 

and threw out picture in the shore.

I will love you just the same--

but it does not make sense anymore. 


I will hold you dear so tightly,

and send my love inside your core.

My darling, I've fallen in love

but the love that I've fallen is not yours anymore.


When I first held you it felt like youth,

and we were back a year or two.

But now I lust for something new--

and it does not make sense to be with you.


As unfortunate as it sounds. 

I think you feel the same,

Our words are vacant, 

and our bond is less than the tamed-

tiger that tires through the terrain, while tired,

because all that are left are intertwined wires that leave her no desire to rekindle this fire. 


I leave you dear so lightly. 

I will continue to send my love inside your core.

And although we once fell in love. 

It was a love that will never make sense anymore.

      A love wilted and dried and perhaps unable to spark because it's ignited with someone else, common story in many parts of the world that you tell so awesomely in fab rhyming. Kudos for this superb poem.
