The Fence

 

This poem is my contribution to the Daily Posts prompt for the day (Fence  )and a poem I’ve had on the tip of my tongue for weeks. Hope you enjoy.

The fence

 

The fence locked me into your arms

and I cried.

The fence around you and I

makes me live.

Trapped

I

love.

 

Free

I

hate.

 

The fence was torn down

and I wept.

The fence around you and I

destroyed.

Free

I

hate.

Trapped

I had

loved.

 

Browned hands touch pale skin.

Leather gloves in the distant

rebuild a fence, post by post.

In an old farmhouse

two stand

face to face.

Free to love

but free they hate.

Trapped by hate

but trapped they love.
