Interview with a Poet The Final Word

Closing Point - Editor’s Poem of the Month

by Ruth Grattan (hoot_owl_rn)

I don’t want you to be my savior
shed your blood on a cross of words
for our sins

I don’t want your sympathy
given out like candy on the street
I am not a child

I don’t want your gift of love
laid out in sacrifice upon the alter
like a slaughtered lamb

I don’t want to feel
your tainted kisses burn upon my skin
with passion’s fire

I don’t want the lies
you told that tore my soul apart
and left me bleeding

I have asked nothing of you
but to give of yourself
yet, you give me nothing.
