New poem: Greener


Greener

If your heart quivers
For someone other
Than whom your with
Tell it that the other side
Is only greener
Until the fence is climbed
Or the gate is broken
And then
The true colors
Of disappointed longing
Or new flavors embraced
Turn into longings
One being greener than the other
In its commitment
For life is more than colors
And the heart beats
Not just in red
But in the passing of time
When what you want now
Becomes what you
Want no more
The self loses it’s soul
Hunger becomes a vice
And in looking
You lose who you are
And become the prey
Or predator
Of whims and dreams
Of what could have been 
Unfulfilled with longings 
That become the new
Lost and not found.
