Three Short Poems


If I were holding you tonight
Id wrap my arms around you tight
as if the world could stop, just so.

Too many ifs, I know
                                    I know.


Easier to say no
        than yes? 

If afterwards
        I yearn more,
                not less . . .

All for Love

Those who give all for love
ought to be quite sure
past investments guarantee
a future sinecure.

Those who give all for love
on any other terms
should make discreet enquiries
how much their partner earns.
