Our Poly Life

Our life as a Polyamorous Quad, with 10 kids.

One Step Closer

on February 17, 2009

Pain in searing waves

Memories of another time betrayed

The words just as fresh

The feeling still as raw


Time does not heal

Nor does laughter make fade

The spears and daggers employed

The wounds and damage reaped


How many tears can one lifetime bring

How many unexpected changes must we traverse

With twisted rationalities

And self serving justifications


Scars and injuries unnoticed

Trading one anguish for another

Unraveling the tapestry once thought majestic

Utopias in devastation


Perhaps the greatest sorrow

Is not sudden tragedy

But so many days outstretched

Each leading closer to extinction


Does it cause pause

Shall one be concerned

For the broken hearts that came before

Or the ones that will follow


What defines the journey

Will it be speed or duration

Or shall we measure adventure

Where frivolity trumps commitment

Ensnarling the heart to a cold and bitter place


Do you hear the band?

Let the parade begin…
