The Trial of Love

The Trial of Love

A Poem by emipoemi

She swishes her feet through the river,
He watches, entranced, from the bank.
A bulk of a man with an eyepatch
Encloses a rock in his hands.
 
She echoes a tune through the zephyrs,
He cries, looking down at himself,
And falls, wilted-winged, in the river,
As the eyepatch man stonily stands.
