I Bleed Words Sometimes


What’s possession?

What’s faithfulness?

What’s loyalty?

How do I own another when I barely own myself?

I can love.

But how do I coax another, arm twist him into sweet surrender.

I can’t.

I won’t.

So l let him go. Like the river making it’s unending journey.

I don’t glance over once.

If I try to stop, it’s all in vain.

The stream stops for no one.

Not even love.

Not even loyalty.

Not even faithfulness.

Not even fidelity.

It’s not a trade we can chose.

Love is a gamble we lose.

    I loved this piece as it bare quite a truth…..truth that we can’t own our-self and then how can we define infidelity…

    Love is indeed a gamble we all love losing..

  3. @Rajeev I’ve already told you how I feel about your kind words. I really really appreciate it. Your words really strike a chord, one that wouldn’t want touched. But nevertheless, I’m glad you wrote Moths and Flames.

  6. Mitchelle, wonderful writing here. The poem is an answer to many questions. I rarely come across words in one ensemble, which hold together the selflessness of love, and I must say, you have always done a fine job at that.

    It is truly a pleasure to read your work and I urge you to keep the ink flowing.
