scales (homophones)

scales (homophones)

he was forced finally
to wade into the question
heavier than anything
he had ever weighed

if you are unable to show in action
the substance of your heart
is it truly the substance of your heart?

scales could never measure
the weight of the answer
he couldn’t wait to hear
pressing on his chest and mind

in the end he would not weigh
the options of heart and actions
or the way her words couldn’t
walk across the room to him again
