Poem: Taken

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #20.)

ebony gleam

it wasn’t
yours to take
but you did

hidden away
you pull it out
stroke it

when no-one
is there to see
your hunger

it wasn’t
yours to keep
but you do

one day
it will escape
break your heart

and then
you’ll both
be free.

Shall we have a conversation?
