Dead to Me

Shall I quote you a sonnet,

Present a soliloquy,

Orate the greatest verses,

Sing an ode written for you?

And when would all of this art,

Bend your heart to fit with mine?

If your heart is dead to me,

Perhaps a farewell is best.



About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
