SEVENTEEN

A chilled out spa day begets creativity…

Joe

Crestfallen
Her words tumble out
Like awkward rain showers
on a summers day
Unwanted, unprepared

“Pregnant”
Her words to him
Burning through
and
Under his skin
It takes two
Yet she says
just The One

Humiliated
It’s what she deserves
This culture is brutal
Her sins shall be punished
Yet
he can not see her harmed
Alarmed he finds himself
Taking the burden

Loved?
He is unsure
Here things are arranged
Now circumstances have changed
did he love?
Can he love again?
Is he not a broken man

Hollow
As he walks away
And makes plans
He will take her
To a different land
See her safe
Then walk away

Alone
He sits before God
in silence
Eventually,
He falls asleep
