Kathleen Thorpe


Guilt shows in your eyes
as they skim the room,
pick me up briefly
then dropp me again
as though I wasn't there.
Squash those feelings that bubble up
whenever you see me.
You're married
and I shouldn't inhabit your heart.
But I do -
for guilt shows in your eyes
as they skim the room,
pick me up briefly
then dropp me again.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
