Heroine


He lays his head on my shoulder,
I look at him and sigh in frustration,
Wishing he could stay there,
Where I know he's safe,

In that moment I'm about as lost,
As he looks,
Wondering how we got here,
With the untrusting,
Trusting me,

I wish I could absorb his pain this way,
I'd take it all,
If only he'd be okay,
Because if he's not okay,
I won't be anyway,
And that's the only thing that really matters,

As I leave,
Reluctantly,
I give an extra hug,
As much for me,
As for him,
Hoping againist all reason,
That it will keep him safe until I return

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
