Bow & Arrow

by Zuri McWhorter

I weep for you

Like a willow sways in the breeze

I can’t control you

I should have never tried.

Tears roll down my face

Like hilly pastures, pollinate.

Color me in pain,

I should have never cried.

I will make time stop

if you call me to you

Pack my bags and walk straight to you

Include me in your prayer

Strip me of my layers

I don’t want to need you anymore.
