Love's Ashes
by Avery  Robertson

Lashing out in rage,
ashamed at my anger which 
hides the deep bitterness of betrayal.
I wonder why I am unhappy,
when my life is abundant
with the spiritual, 
with love of life 
and a child,
yet, there it is, 
stark,
naked, 
hanging over me.
I never realized that 
when you told me 
the price of loving you 
would cost me my life.
And I, 
innocent in love, 
childlike in my trust
smiled up at you and
said in joy, 
what a bargain!
Again in yearning, 
wrapped in sorrows chains,
a voice of the universe calls.
I am lost in disbelief
that such beauty would
turn itself into love's ashes.
