One Side Of The Coin

A free verse poem

One Side Of The Coin

Every time

I entered his space,

I didn’t find

anything I was searching for.

On the table,

I saw one coin-

a one-sided coin

I wished to discard.

Every time

I’d flip the coin,

I’d only find

one side of the coin.

Hunting for a two-sided coin

became impossible-

a giant energy taker

that’d put me to bed.

He was a complex conundrum-

a golden coin

that only had

one side of the coin.

I relinquished,

I uttered to myself,

“You know what?! I can’t solve this mystery anymore! I’m done. Maybe someone else will find another side of the coin.’

That was that.

I no longer

possess the one-sided coin;

that’s tons of weight

off my shoulders!

    Hi Talia ~ Your stories always 'Pop-Out' remembrances to me. Including your 'Pesach' story which I forwarded around to my readers; especially to my Jewish Community Centers that follow my Silly Articles.*They loved it! Coincidence: This lifted from my "Pick your Battles" "...Life is like a coin, spend it any way you want, but once it's gone it's gone — Is it Worth it?
