Karmic Retribution - Poem by Rachael Swiss
I have grown accustomed to them.
The daily reminders and affirmations of amorous intent
Affection is contagious though not widespread
But you severed those ties when I severed the fidelity
Seven hundred miles of harmonious silver cords
Cut down in one fell swoop of the axe that I grind
And your satellites don’t recognize my number anymore.
I would take them back with the beat of my heart
With far less thought than brought them to fruition
Such inconsideration on my part
Along with guilt and shame and regret
You deserve to hate me
Distrust me and loathe me
Firebrand me with an “A”
And boldly I would step into the letter.
But please my love, first a favor to perform,
An imposition from a lowly creature -
Tell me first that you only act out of perishable pain
And that when your wounds have come to heal
And you have finally found relief
That you will come to me and say
You love me once again.
