Intimacy (poem #126)

   

I have so many secrets,

The biggest,

How I feel.

This photo is just one crystal on my chandelier now shattered on the ground,

You have seen more of me than you ever will,

Because this captured the moment everything fell apart,

Truly there is nothing more intimate… 

Nothing will suffice (Poem #125)

There are no amount of pain killers,

Alcohol,

Or weed,

That can mask this breaking heart.

No time,

Narcotic,

Or hallucinogen

That can overpower the darkness that is losing your love.

No words,

No signs of affection,

Or self inflicted wounds,

That will make create answers as to how you fell out of love.

You became the beat to my heart,

The air to my lungs,

The breath to my life,

And now all you are is a void nothing will fill…

Forever ended Yesterday (Poem #122)

I dared to utter the words that trembled my soul,

Yet I could not comprehend the fault line crumbling below me,

Could not hear the warning cries.

No, I remained hopefully infatuated by you,

Willing to walk the edge of this quaking world 

Because stupidly I believed the words I spoke when I cried out to you,

“I want forever with you even if forever ends tomorrow”

Silly me not to notice that forever ended yesterday,

I just didn’t get the memo that we were already dead…
