A poem about love and the follies of commitment:) Thank you for reading!

&other apprehensions

You profess your love

through handwritten letters,

through signposts ,and

through the world wide web;

through trays of assorted desserts

and through emails with

links to research papers.

And what an insult to injury-

with a steady scalpel

I dissect your verses

(What are your intentions?)

I crave love

but I crave safety more.

I need to know if

this will end?

Whether

this will end?

and will I be alone

on an abandoned isle

If it does?

The poets tell me

love is healing

but what of this

arrow and this

impaled heart?

For now ,

you will send messenger pigeons

and speed posts;

And with a urgency tamed by my fears

I will read love poems aloud.
