How Much?

Sometimes we can be tempted into making one compromise too many…


Was it worth it

In the end?

When you sold it

Down at the bazaar?


On a winters’ night

Do you miss it still?

Is there a bitter echo

Where it was?


Does your shiny shell

See the yolk?

Your scrambled heart

Does it ache?


And down that river

Where you bargained,

Did they offer you

A decent price?


Or do you wish

To touch once again

your beating

and vital, Soul?
