The Sad Owl

I'm just here. Until I'm not.

Anguish

Say that you love me, don’t Follow me but you won’t Hold me but let go Console me but never know Tranquil but not at peace Thunderous anger as silent tears Words like the softest fleece In calm whisper my greatest fears Anguish Wrenched, wretched, woe Slow, nowhere to go […]

Rope

Sickly draw in The prey My noose is well fitted  Elegant and luxurious So tempting Tantalizing I sell it like it glitters  A necklace Can I interest you in a dance, my love I like The way you stray further as you chase after Search the heart, pull the reins  […]

Lover’s Lament

It breaks my heart, again To see us reassemble the pieces Only to find that This isn’t working out  What was it I saw in your eyes If they were not yours When your voice went shrill Or weak with fatigue How I wanted to hold you Carry you to […]

Sorely Mistaken

The simplicity of a heart devoted Ring already binding Tightly to the aorta  Closing a valve to ink that noted The very life of finding Disconcerted in a plethora  Small grapes that sour Make fine wine for my saddest hour  Drink until I no longer cower Ask my question to […]

Back to New York

Stuck in the middle of Nevada Neon fish in the sky, flashing lights The yellow cab pulled up in a blur I said goodbye to my best friend I think he kissed me on the lips Or maybe I just imagined it Men never say I love you before goodbye […]

Sway

Simple smiles fail When the heart no longer flourishes Arboreal lines across an aging face As the fall leaves find winter Falling for a spring that will never come A summer with no sunshine A love that is not mine © The Sad Owl

In Discord

Hourglass to umbra The time spent in shadows So light and heartfelt Wine in the bloodstream Not meant for us we fumble the stars and words hallow Pray we might leave well Supple torn supplied seam  It would seem that the sand is running low The ground dug out just […]
