OctPoWriMo, Day 25 (Caught Up)


Giving Love

Giving love
Is all I’ve ever done
Bent over backwards, twisted in knots
Here in my hands, an offering: here is my heart
You took it without a word of thanks
Only asked if it could
Beat faster

This was written for OctPoWriMo, 31 poems in 31 days.  this was written using the given prompt “the door opens both ways,” and the form triquain.
