elephant graveyard [poem]

I may never know love again
and it hurts to admit that
I will love
of course
because my every smile is a sign of affection
even for a stranger
but I may never let someone past
the elephant graveyard made up of my ex lovers
and their promises
let the sun bleached bones
speak of the need for honesty
even if it kills us
I don’t want any more bodies buried
in the valley between the truth and the trouble
let there be a safe path to my heart
that a worthy seeker may find their way in
