Ekphrastic Poetry...

No--I Will Not

by Jacqueline M Franklin

Ekphrastic Poem
Rhyming quatrains

“No—I Will Not …”
 
 
If I could but turn back the hands of time
reminisce
 over our melancholy used to be
cogitate love’s demise under our old tree
I would confess with vast ease on a dime
 

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

 
While your hands flew over the piano keys
with perfect harmony as I sipped fine wine
remained content to watch your star shine
yet, for me, the limelight I chose not to seize

 
Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not
 

I remember the days of living in a fishbowl
as reality will not relinquish its weary hold
time took its toll on my heart, it turned cold
sometimes I ponder if I will again be whole
 

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

 
I no longer yearn for your touch as back then
since you sought to shatter our beloved vows
as I had no desire to seek you out and arouse
chose to leave my heartbreak behind—amen 


Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

 
If I could but turn back the hands of time
reminisce over our melancholy used to be
cogitate love’s demise under our old tree
I would confess with vast ease on a dime
 

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not
