“One Love Noticed, One Love Drowned” – Poem

By

One love drowned,

One love crowned

With dutifulness.

I etched a number into my wrists

With a blade, for blood to kiss,

As that blood reveals love so noticed.

Love lifted away

From this sorry doomsday.

Love was told to stay,

Placed in my heart.

It leaped away

To the better parts of yesterday.

And I am forced to move

From the lake where it drowned.
