Comment on this Work


you have crossed borders dismissing sanctity
surmounted barricades once unassailable
to lay at my feet an explosive gift

love is warfare

I am left shaking in anger, engulfed in guilt
when I have done nothing but listen, unwittingly,
to a confession I never saw coming

love is too often a bullet

you are a separatist movement
aiming your guns right at my head
an attempt to dissolve sovereignty

love is a violation of territorial integrity

there is no legislation to deal with what you propose
I cannot draw parallels where there are none
this act of terrorism completely blindsided me

love is stumbling in the dark in a hole you dug in me
