Poets Already Know It

An old fool’s love for words and poems
Bears his lost soul as his thoughts roam
Caught in love’s hope circling the drain
Telling her now not lost or gained

She’s not surprised knew all along
Reading this poem hearing his song
Knowing the cost, gain hard to see
Her smile and tears answered for me
