For Whatever Reason, Have You Ever - Poem by Joshua Bantum


Have you ever mistook a street light
For the moon,
But wept beneath it’s false beauty

Have you ever looked into a one
Night lovers eyes,
And saw a wife,
Despite the lack of emotional

Have you ever been a glutton,
And mistook your over consumption
For something
Then what it was.

Have you ever read anothers poem,
And swore they stole your thoughts,
Have you ever loved
A poet,
Because you mistook him for
A saint.
