My Single Mother

To fall out of love 
is no quick task.
It is slow, steady, 
and rarely abrupt.

Heartbreak is tension
that stretches its legs to
for the crash.

It's a sluggish





Each particle over time
misses the mold
of what we imagine
as the perfect match.

So we arrive at a crossroads
for each party to be resold,
to another lover
with no strings attached.

Very effective syntax
and structure gives this poem emotive tension

Micaela, Thank you for this. The first and last stanzas are very fitting indeed. Keith
