but Echo

but Echo                                                       June 25, 2016
he has faith that he will catch an Echo
and take her for his wife.
but the Echo,
her only faith is life.

is it a mercy
to be a living Echo?
or would it have been kinder
to have left her for dead?

he has faith that he will hold Echo
in his strong arms.
but Echo
has no trust for men’s charms.

he has faith that he will have Echo
naked in his bed.
but Echo
is of the living dead.

is it mercy
to have an Echo’s love
or would it be kinder
never to taste her loyalty?

he has faith that he can call the Echo
to come and stand at his side.
but Echo
stays where she can hide.

he has faith that Echo
loves him unconditionally.
but Echo
is always solitary.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
