Nothing Withstands the Wind

YOU LOVED ME ONCE

Why isn’t this enough? this me alone?
I never ask for much from you—a word,
A smile. You look at me as if you own
My soul, but cannot wait to sell. Deferred
Decisions trap us both. What thoughts occurred
To you that changed your mind, hardened your heart?
You loved me once. What wind tore us apart?
