A Shifting Goal Post - Poem by Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos

Passionately playing dart
With cupid's arrow
To pierce your heart
I did squander
Many a year
Oblivious I am making
A blunder
Aiming at a goal post
That non-stop wander!

Topic(s) of this poem: fickle, sad love


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A pensive girl I met in a bar remorsefully related to me how the man she loves, spent a quality time with and helped for a decade still downplays and abuse her.
