Forever...

Posted to Action Poetry




is an ugly word
used to destroy
barriers that might
otherwise protect
an innocent soul.

Forever
is an ugly word
that blinds
the believer from seeing
eternity
not on his mind.

Forever
is an ugly word
used to trick
the fly onto the spiderweb;
the bull into the ring.

Forever
is an ugly word
used to bind
one partner into
monogamy
while the other
has his fun.

Forever
is an ugly word
used to hurt
when one fresh smile
makes him forget.

Forever
is an ugly word;
a most neccessary vice
for those who
hate solitude
but don't believe in
love.
