Daily missive for Wednesday the 30th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 30th of March.

It is so beautiful
The pain of love
Brings me to my knees.
Such sweetness
Tastes so bitter
It leaves reminiscence as
A devil to pay.
Whenever the cost
Of happiness
Is weighed
Against the theft
Of my soul
I choose sadness.
It is the least
Of all my evils
And one I have
Come to know
So well.
It has taken
A place at the
Head of my table,
Waiting until
I raise a glass
And smiles in recognition
Of its influence,
Mocking the poverty
Of my reflection
In its acute
Single mindedness.
Should my vigour
Be restored
A day that might come
As soon as who
Can tell,
It will fade
Into a gentle persuasion,
More akin
To a friendly
Whisper of remembrance,
Than the intolerable
Tyranny
Of its
Daily scream.
