Insufficient Transaction

This poem is from my poem collection, ‘Open Eye.’

It’s her love that gave me strength!

She chose to care when she could have left.

She bet on love in a world full of hate.

I gave respect for her actions But when I repaid, my heart said insufficient transaction.

I apologised for sins she had already forgiven.

I put out flames of a fire that hadn’t risen.

She picked me up when I had fallen. She treated me harsh for my bad actions.

She taught me things I haven’t forgotten.

When the world said “You lost” she made me feel like a champion.

I gave respect for her actions But when I repaid, my heart said insufficient transaction.

She’s tolerant, I’m a mess. I pushed her away, she replied with a kiss.

It’s her love that gave me strength.

The whole world’s worth of debt cant satisfy the feeling, ’i can’t pay her back.’

At moments it fills me with anger but usually, it’s cheerful banter.

I can only dread to think that she could take her last blink,

it feels like being crushed by rocks during the shake of an earthquake.

The respect I have can’t be taken. The love she gave can’t be taken.

If she’s gone then I will break for it is clear in every sense.

It’s her love that gave me strength!

This poem is from my poem collection, ‘Open Eye.’
