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?
