Once Omit I Yearn For Him - Poem by Oni Hayes

Beaten with words I expect more on my default
Insisting he gratify my impression of the opposing
Subconsciously I justify his moral

Producing his own and my endeavor
He, himself cemented our relationship
When charged the diverse we fasten
Yet when positive we repel

Once omit I yearn for him
Poignant pangs penetrate my course
My fortitude takes rigid metamorphism
From diamond to coal

Valor implants despair
Yet both are apparent
Preventive agonizing lose foreseen
acceptance gratifies another

    Begins with almost harsh, textbook speech (good thing!) . A change occurs somewhere in the third stanza. This one needs a few reads... (Report)Reply
