~ White Feather ~

by ladyliterati


We teetered on the cusp;

Cupids dart striking heart strings
That quivered, quickened the senses
Stirring solitude of the soul

You choose solitude of self
Left me standing heart in hand;
I gifted you the white feather:

To love takes courage
I found you wanting.

  1. In line 5 did you mean ‘choose’ or ‘chose’ . . . If it were me I would want to know . . . Otherwise I really like the poem! Blessings . . .

  2. Nice poem about unrequited love (the way I see it)…..I like the last two lines: “to love takes courage, I found you wanting,” Love does take courage, you make yourself vulnerable when you let some one in. Some people just cannot love back…I have found many wanting.

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
