A Relationship, Of Sorts Poem by Chuck Audette

A Relationship, Of Sorts

Rating: 4.7

Love flew in my window
I thought 'whatever for? ! '
in the past it just brought woe
so I showed it to the door

Then in through my window
crawled a thing called Fear
saying 'if you won't chance Love
then I will live right here'

Mmm, the perils of leaving that window open. I find that it's fear that flies in all too often, and love that crawls, sometimes not even knowing it has come in. Oh, you've provoked my most profound response yet! Great poem.

Though brief, this is a witty and clever poem, Chuck. I particularly liked how you made each terse word count, yet made them produce just the right bit of imagery to make this poem very effective. Carl.
