The Frightened Man

The Frightened Man

In fear of the rich mouth
I kissed the thin,
Even that was a trap
To snare me in.

Even she, so long
The frail, the scentless,
Is become strong,
And proves relentless.

O, forget her praise,
And how I sought her
Through a hazardous maze
By shafted water.

Poem The Frightened Man - Louise Bogan
