Love On The Fly

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

I leave broken hearts in my path

and sometimes look back and take

a tally. An estimate of how

many hearts I have slain.

.

Among them, the one I truly

loved did not want me.

I join the hearts he has broken

and he sees me on his path

when he looks back.

.

When I turned thirty I

walked into maturity in time

to pick a mate for life, rig

the game in favor of sincerity,

faithfulness, monogamy

and the unusual perspective

to face front and stop

looking back.
