Your Love, a poem by Rebecca Herz at

Your Love

Your Love

written by: Rebecca Herz


I choose to live in a different way
with my hard work

with full disclosure that hard work
won’t be enough

I choose to let you in, I must
if you will keep me

atonal as I am with at least
two heartstrings frayed for posterity

no work of mine will stand up
to eternity

still, your love
will guide my trembling hands
