Ode to Loves Lost
Poetry in ode form.
O loves! Lost to me, sailing now upon the wind.
Carried away, each of you, fated not to be
I once clung, a quiet, desperate sin
Bound by paths I once traced upon your skins.
You each let loose the complications of we
However wrong each love, thy hearts all lost
And removed from the horizons of me,
Have now and all at once set me free!
O — lovers lost, now…
