marks the spot…
where I buried the excised detritus
of a relationship that explored
the very depths of exalted love.
I never considered exceeding expectations,
though I exhausted all extenuating possibilities.
After careful examination of your exhibition,
I am exonerated. No explanation is needed.
I will not further excavate my heart and soul;
I will not exhume extraneous vestige.
Extinguished, heart in exodus, it leaves
only a final example of abdication.
Yet, I know that love exists.
~McGuffy Ann Morris
Poems that have the letter X in the title are difficult to find. I had no “X” poems. So, I wrote this poem for my first A-Z Challenge, in 2016. However, aside from that, this poem is extremely meaningful to me. It is my hope that it may speak to someone who reads it, too.
“My Writeful Heart”:
D= The Drought
F= Final Departure
G= The Guardian
H= The Horologist
L= The Loan
P= Mr. Peabody
Q= The Queen
