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'


I've only recently caught sight of your work. I wish it had been earlier. This is a brilliantly crafted piece with elements of truth just thrown in as if in jest... very finely crafted.

Oh yeah it's like your telling your self the result of what you might reject or accept.. Nice way of putting it!

I love this, Chuck! You could have written a mountain of words and not said as much! That old devil called 'commitment' eh :) Love has flown in and out of my window many times...now I begin to wonder if I've seen the last flight...ah well :) Great stuff :) Jack.

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.
