Simone Inez Harriman

(New Zealand)

Relinquished love


Relinquished love
Severed and snuffed
From the indifference of a laughing lover
This thief of intimacy and passion
Stabs my heart
Wounding me deeply

Elsewhere

A single blood red drop
From a fragile aorta
Rolls down a white feathered breast
Of a dead wingless dove
Gripped in the hands of an innocent child

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
