There was no way to stay.

Whatever choice was made

was bound to be wrong,

because this song we create

requires we pay again and again

for our harmonic

dissonance.

Still reading Jodi Picoult’s Mercy.   Do you write poems for the characters you read about?

Do not leave him unsupervised,

For those flames in his eyes

are burning for the stranger

he’s been dreaming of.

Leave him unsupervised

to throw away your history.

If his eyes burn for her,

he doesn’t deserve your

unswerving devotion.

 

 

Reading Jodi Picoult’s novel Mercy.  Feel like screaming, so I wrote a poem.
