Read introduction

This poem was inspired by a lovely young cherry who frequently visits a church of which I inhabit. Unexpectedly I grew quite fond of her thus spawned was this poem.

Three nights ago
I spotted the two of you chatting
In motions resembling amplified speed
Away my eyes were taken

Over such a cheerless duration
An unwanted grievance was composed

In that moment
Quite freely I collapsed
A bite of envy monopolizing my bones
As throughout this war of longing
You escape with innocence

Ignorance made love
To the space between us
Adjusted to the scenery
There I stood---
Staring---
Just staring..
