Half of Something Else

she’s choking on the smoke
of unthinkable choices
she is haunted by the voices
of so many desires
she’s bent over from the business 
of begging forgiveness
while frantically running around
putting out fires

but then what kind of scale
compares the weight of two beauties
the gravity of duties
or the ground speed of joy?
tell me what kind of gauge 
can quantify elation?
what kind of equation
could i possibly employ?
and you’ll never know, dear 
just how much i loved you 
you probably think this was 
just my big excuse
but i stand committed
to a love that came before you
and the fact that i adore you
is just one of my truths
