Poem: Dig Deeper

Dig Deeper I have cut myself to my ankles many times before because that is what you taught me. This is what you breathed into my mouth when I didn’t want your lips anywhere near mine. You insisted, Boy, did you keep insisting. Jeez,… Continue Reading “Poem: Dig Deeper”

Poem: The Belly

The Belly I have outlived you by a few years, at most probably five, maybe even ten, but no more than eleven. As I sat waiting to reach my destination, I had time to think about you in the silence, imagining what aspirations you… Continue Reading “Poem: The Belly”

Poem: Weary Comparison

Weary Comparison You tell me you can’t go on, that you are sore, burned out, sent to the brink of not being able to return. But you’ve never listened to yourself, or told yourself you can go on, as a fighter, a survivor, someone… Continue Reading “Poem: Weary Comparison”

Poem: Darkness

If I told you to touch it, would you?  I don’t think you would. I really don’t think you would. You crave loneliness. You do things in the dark. It’s not like I don’t know who you are. I see you not holding your… Continue Reading “Poem: Darkness”

Poem: Not You

Not You I’ve kicked you out many times From my mind. I’ve bolted down the tiny path, Always leading somewhere toward mistakes. I played with death Because of you. I wanted it. I craved it. I needed it. My chest was crushed under your… Continue Reading “Poem: Not You”

Poem: In the Meantime

Poem: Always

It seems you have been here before. Yes, you have. The objects look the same. Yet, you know they are different. The dust is another layer formed. Another year gone by, and you must escape from under these dark clouds. Your eyes are heavy.… Continue Reading “Poem: Always”

Poem: What Could Have Been

What Could Have Been What are the odds? Not very high.  I told myself this over and over. It must be difficult to know you lost out on something. Yes, it stings a little bit, but all the time people lose. Some lose something… Continue Reading “Poem: What Could Have Been”

Short Poem: The Blind Date

The Blind Date She told me to not be so damn perfect. It wasn’t that I was trying all that hard. I told her this.  I truly did.  I did. I did, I did, I did, I did, and I did. You think she… Continue Reading “Short Poem: The Blind Date”

Poem: I Ask When

I Ask When This too shall pass, they told me. When I asked why, there was nothing but silence. This was why it never went beyond the first question. On that day, I never received anything substantial. I wanted more and rightly so, but… Continue Reading “Poem: I Ask When”
