Poem Commentary

This was written not long after my friend was killed, it was originally a drawing.  Hills in the background with many paths twisting and turning down them, a moon and clouds in the shape of a side profile of a face and hair streaming behind.


So many paths

          From which to choose,

So easily

          They can confuse.

So do I take

          The left or right?

Which one does lead

Me to the light?

So many paths

          None with a mark,

How do I know

          The path of dark?

You took one path

And I another

Were you right

          Or will you smother?

You are now gone

          And I betrayed

You are now gone

          So here I lay.

They say those who

You love do wait

For you to answer

          And grab the bait.

You are now gone

          And I betrayed,

You went left

And I the other way.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
