To be Wanted

It was a long time ago… Somewhere scattered In artifacts of memories and the shrapnel of delicate hearts Exploding into glass panes of deep red and the black veins that create the image Now separated and indistinguishable, it’s just red thorns with no bloom Empty space with no room Red […]

Along Came Amélie

Yellow sweater and sun faded jeans In the middle of a crowd dancing, loud with screams Doe brown eyes that sparkled like dreams Held me captive in the corner of a seat The closeness and quickness on the lap of a heat Being trapped in a hunt somehow becomes a […]

Loves me Not (part 2)

Why was it that as my life grew happier, fuller, fulfilled and answered for That I thought to question about you Inquiries of a random passing by conversation  Of no relation to my bountiful inundation  Made me want to swim back to the surface A breath of fresh air that […]

Loves Me Not (part 1)

Unsullied and unbiased  Folly for eyes so often in the ground Meeting their earthy gaze and sparkle Plant seeds in my mind Flowering the long stems of your eyelashes Batting like you might fly away  The small mole, a black hole  Hiding right beneath your chin I could swear sometimes […]

The Last Hope

A forest fire rages from the cackling laugh of embers So hot that even aluminum shrinks into flattened bark Ashes litter the ground, soot in the air And the smell of life caught in a chaos Sickening and fading Echoes unheard through the roaring of the flames Screaming to save […]

One night, just turned summer Spring glimmer Flowers germinate One sight, one to another Words simmer As pupils dilate Hungry and forlorn Distant but never lost Veering off to empty spaces I often fill with you At least the image Mysterious and unfinished Smile just slightly blemished  Blush in which […]

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  […]

Chat Fish

A photograph and place Fake and a face One in the water and one without a trace Living vicariously and living a lie  Aim untrue looks with both eyes  Not in their skin and tortured inside They used to swim together © The Sad Owl
