Poem: “Torturous”

He’d always been told

(by who?)

the pursuit is more gratifying

than the capture or

(more simplified)

that getting is better

than having and this

(he found)

was accurate because

as difficult as it was

(had been)

to earn her attention

keeping her affection was

(at times)

a clock’s tick

away from torturous
