marks the spot…
where I buried the excised detritus
of a relationship that explored
the very depths of exalted love.
I never considered exceeding expectations,
though I exhausted all extenuating possibilities.
After careful examination of your exhibition,
I am exonerated. No explanation is needed.
I will not further excavate my heart and soul;
I will not exhume extraneous vestige.
Extinguished, heart in exodus, it leaves
only a final example of abdication.
Yet, I know that love exists.
~McGuffy Ann Morris
Poems that have the letter X in the title are difficult to find. I had no favourite “X” poems. So, I wrote this poem especially for this challenge. With that being said, this poem is extremely meaningful to me because of the content that I have expressed. It is my hope that it speaks to others who may read it and connect with these heartfelt feelings.
