A tempting situation for a man of no stature
lacking in depth and security
I tread water of loving indifference

your heart flutters at my smile
and your soul jumps at my sight

but I am not you, I sit uninspired
know that despite my leaving I love you
I just do as my father’s done
I pack up and walk out

Seth Goold is a poet born in Lafayette, LA.
