Hearts Affliction

affliction

an unshakeable
sickness this heart’s affliction
where perversity flies free
of wisdom’s wings

separation of linked
entities weighed in their
degree of long association
cannot be reversed so easily

this sweet affair fell alone
upon its knees; a late
change viewed mutuality
as being too one-way

a dead-end street for the
journeys you wish to
make but a tomb and
a gravestone for me
