Were She To Die (Written February 20)

Were She To Die


It needed something like that

To see the emptiness of the promise

I’d made, when I was young


And innocent. Were she to die

And I to be left adrift among

The drifting crowds, to live


Would be to die each day,

One more time. To give

Voice to the afflicted


Would be my singular consolation,

As meager as a snow flake. Conflicted,

Beaten, used up, I would have no


Reason to go on living, and my

Fondest hope would be to find

A way to end it all.
