Since you had failed to be a worthy listener
I opened the cages of my heart and mind
and I set you free,
but you freely came back to me
a willing practitioner …
So I reinstalled you as my prisoner –
but into a different cage.
I will sentence you to eternal life
upon a page
in a book …
My first impression returns
for a second look.
Out of my heart, out of my mind,
now in-between the lines
of my rhythm and rhymes:
You will survive through the ages,
unstopped by time,
from one trap to the next …
NOTE: And that’s how you keep the loves of your life from ever leaving you …
You write about them and put them in books … Thus making them, IMMORTAL!
