Only One

Only one broke the heart of the poet
Others only guess but my soul knows it
Sighs and regret being released from their lips
Are all stirred up, from that single courtship

Others may blur the bottom line
Tied with the one that they really pine
All these poems of rejection lie
Within these lines where my heart does cry

  1. Michael, loved this. The opening line is particularly inspired, leading to your heartbreak being shared more fully. The poet becomes the poem. Peace, Amy
