Justify Your love..

As you emptied the magazine

of .357 reasons why,

did you pause to reload?

Each hollow point

spreading traces

of shiny, justified lead

Did you keep a tally

as they mounted up,

your casings on the floor?

When I couldn’t prove

beyond a reasonable doubt,

did that gavel strike?

And when they chalked me up

to experience

did you applaud?

In the blue flashing lights

my mortal imprint fading

in the winter rain

And when Sherlock comes

looking for proof,

will he find it?

That line by line refutation

did it convince your heart?

Does it now?

I am sorry that

I could not justify my love

…enough

and you couldn’t yours….
