EncumbranceTo secure your love you required my assets but the interest on your heart came at too high a price. I am love poor.  You are an encumbrance. I need to break free before you foreclose on my heart.

Ever distant yet ever present, please stop calling me home.

      Thank you. It was fun weaving together love and economy. Seems like an unlikely fit but I think it worked.

      Well, I do need to sweeten my words up sometimes. 🙂

  3. this is so very definitely your genre! The subject (heartbreak) is timeless, and the setting (financial world) is timely. Brilliant!

      Thanks so much. I was definitely inspired by the fact that Toronto is the financial capital of Canada. I’m glad you picked up on that.

    • Janet said:

      I never thought of that but that’s perfect!

  4. “I need to break free before you foreclose on my heart.”—Lovely line. 🙂

      Thanks Carrie. That’s one of my favourite lines too.
