Self-sacrifice - Love Collection Bonus #2

Allowing a Love to Die

Bonus / Deleted Poem #2

It remained in the collection right up until just before the final decision.
I thought the book was big enough. Less is more. Right?

Head off at the pass 

There’s little 
To draw from 
A trickle 
Once a tenacious flow 
Now bare moisture on rocks 
Passion monochrome 
Sucking in air 
Suffocating fish gasps. 

Inevitability laden 
It all ends  
Though remains unexpected 
Sharp revelations  
The lover who finally 
Called it void 
When optimism kept you breathing. 

Betrayal is often obvious 
(For the discerning)  
Therefore self-sacrifice 
Is the ultimate victor
