Self Pity

Leave a comment

Tears roll down my face
And I feel sorry for myself

The bitter taste of salt
Accompied by my guilt

As I trace the lines
From my world to hers

Can’t miss the correlation
Before the consternation

And hot tears fall again
With or without refrain

Tears roll down my face
And I feel sorry for myself

Despite the best of intention
Or worse, the hope

High upon the shelf
Neither of us could see

Find the way free
Or certainly cope

Now I’m wallowing
All the while wishing

I could maybe be
Someone more than me

Tears roll down my face
And I feel sorry for myself

Can’t get enough

Leave a comment

Pebbles against
Cold October pane
Plink,
plink,
plink
Too stinkin’ drunk
In love with you
To think

Except your eyes
So deep in mine
Better than
Sweetest
Taste of wine

On lips
Yours to mine
Hip to hip
Sip for luscious sip
Feeds my hunger

For that window
To burst open
And your eyes
Peer boldly down
Enlist
My happy sighs

There you are

It isn’t gratitude
Or pretty
Platitudes

It isn’t kisses
And whispered
Bedtime wishes

It isn’t touch
Or taste
Nor melodic sound
Outta the blue

Where I’ve found
My ground
In this love for you

But the look
From your eyes
To mine
That speaks
In perfect time

Smell of coffee
And chaos
Whispers past
This song in my ear

As I sit and wonder
Will this be my year?
Where I conquer
My constant companion
Of every little fear?

Smell of coffee
And chaos
Whispers past
This song in my ear

And I hum along
As my trembling fingers
Brush away the tears
As I sit and wonder
Will this be my year?

Between the chatter
In my cluttered mind
And burning sip of tea
Will this be the time
Where I speak for me?

Smell of coffee
And chaos
Whispers past
This song in my ear
As I sit and wonder
Will this be my year?

Reminders of you

I hear our song
Instantly
My lips lift
And stretch wide

There isn’t any way
I can hide
This sparkle
In my eyes

Or the love
That rushes
Through veins
To my heart
My brain

To where my soul
Is fully entangled
With yours

“You are enough”

Leave a comment

It isn’t profound
doesn’t require
Eloquent monologue
Or constant praise

It isn’t just a phase
Or clever phrase
But just
three little words

Whispered
Just so softly
Into the aether
Towards mine
Own reflection

Until self imposed
Infliction
Ceases to exist
And she’s able
To resist

All other words
From the voices
In all directions
Inside one mind

Pieces of me

Leave a comment

From this angle

She’s broken into pieces

In shards of mirror

 

Except those eyes

Stare so deep through

Not just this moment

 

This illusion

In shades of blue

Hides the lies

Between the truth

 

Where salty drops

Drip down cheeks

But beyond the fear

 

The distant echoes

Of merriment

In those green eyes

Just beyond her cries
