No Whether

Wide Branches
Caroline Mullis


When the rain came in you said be whole again 
That parched brown field will now begin 
To let all the water trickle in, 

There is no whether left 

When the clouds did fade, I took I take 
The love that we once made 
I roll and throw in those glossy blades 
Into new water you wade

When our sun did shine I said what’s yours is mine. But you’re not mine. 
You took it all, you breached the line 
This body must now resign
