Poem: Washed

dipped in
and under
swirled round
in cold fast tides
breaking waves
i’m tumbled
pulled
roughly
pushed
polished
cleansed
by sand
and grit
by rocks
and time
until all
that remains
is theĀ gleaming
hard whiteness
of theseĀ bones.

Poem: Cold Facts

you beguiled me
pulled me in
so all I was
was simply yours

you never loved me
you never really did
you never loved me
and no one ever will

i’m just a fool
fallen under
your wanton spell
without a will

you never loved me
you never truly could
you never loved me
and no one ever will

you took it all
and wanted more
sent me packing
right out your door

you never loved me
you never wanted to
you never loved me
and no one ever will

memories are
all i have now
and they just burn
an aching hole

you never loved me
you only loved yourself
you never loved me
and no one ever will

i don’t regret
the nights we shared
all i regret
is everything else.


Poem: Lunacy

wounded moon
you spiral above me
elliptical loops
waxing and waning
ebbing and flowing

wounded moon
spilling me into
your madness
tidal force
pulling me into
your grasp

wounded moon
sucking me
into surrender
only to be
released at
sunrise

wounded moon
on the horizon
stained by my heart
blotting out stars
with your passing

wounded moon
dripping autumn
and nectar memories
kissing summer
farewell.
