wishing wells

15 Mar

you called her
naive.
but it had always been
love
to her.

and now you get it.

but without relief.
for what you had not seen
weakened what was
trust
to her.

yet,
remarkably
she still prays.
but mostly
that time
can align
eyes,
as well
as it heals
hearts.

    Great poem. the aligning of eyes suggests that gaze has shifted from the person?

      if i told you, i’d have to kill you. i like that different people will receive something different from the piece, but you are onto what the words are to me. so to answer your question, sort of. gaze has shifted in the sense that perspective has changed.
