Had I Known....


Had I known that the heart
breaks slowly, dismantling itself
into unrecognizable fragments
of misery....
Had I known the heart would leak
emitting it's ache
with a vulgar visisbility
Into the dress-up dining rooms
of strangers.....
Had I known that solitude could
stifle the breath, loosen the mind,
and force the toungue against the
palate.....
Had I known that lonlieness could
permeate, winding itself around the
body in an omnious and beautiful
cicatrix.....
Had I known-
I still would have loved you.
Your brash and violent beauty,
Your heavy comedic face
And your knowledge of sweet
delights.
But from a distance
I would have left you unfrequented
for the delectation of those who
Wanted more and could care less....




 "It was my love that did us both to death. " -Sylvia Plath
