From: You

The gone but not forgotten æther of your being hanging like fruit in the skies Sunsets; closing the rays of your breath I miss The tarnished; mania succumbs not in My heart pining, droning sounds of a star’s demise Falling stars with wishes that die in words, this— Sinking feeling; […]

Runaway Anticipation

Breaking down anatomy Lattice of our system chemically Off the grid you won’t ever see me Human desires; look upon me keenly The hunt for the things that make us happy Desperately, I run from obligations bound to trap me How could it be you want the same so badly […]

Judged

It was anything you — Wanted I could do it for you if you had — Conviction Confusing intimate and inanimate An objection Of how your confusion makes you an inmate Imprisoned Holding thoughts like love is just an object Just… Try to pull back your words but actions will […]

End of The Line

Rubbing mitts together on a cold morning Awaiting the desert sun with puffs of warm breath Longing forever without warning The imminent will come, the past will have left Rosy cheeks where you waited Laughing as I ran and barely made it Youth is as foolish as forever But that’s […]

Unforgettable

Little whispers in my ears Echo bidirectionally In and out The words of my worst fears As though a reflection of me Shows my doubt In what is real and make believe Followed, running, panicked Wallowed, saddenning, manic These voices of yours, they never leave © The Sad Owl

“Never Again”

Never again Will I feel sweet supple lips that couple around mine a bitter kiss that I will miss Never Will I fall for your slick words and cherry lipstick the way you spark a small wick Again Melting wax on a candlestick your words trick sputtering flames to spit […]

Clothes in the Dryer

I tried For a long time Cried A loss of mine Everyday I read the labels and their instructions You and I pulled by cables at first introductions The fabric of my favorite tee shirt Was now less tightly woven than my heart strings We laughed and smiled a flirt […]

Drive Away

For as long as I can remember I hated the way you drive Aggressive No respect for others You hogged the road And when others needed space You showed no compassion In all that time I somehow got nowhere You knew what was best So did I When the fork […]
