Your wisdom dazzled me.
Admiration came easy.
I knew nothing.
You taught me everything.
I liked you at first
Then loved you.
What did I know?
I gave you all I had.
You threw it all away with the morning trash.
Now you try to infect me with your wretchedness,
Your soul devoured by loneliness.
You say I know nothing.
But I know that walls pile high about you
And the chisel to set you free
Lies buried under the morning trash.
Today Trifecta gave us the word INFECT. I tried my hand at poetry. How did I do?
