Gears

In a river of sorrow,

All of my hope disappears,

Letting go of tomorrow,

As fate grinds her rusty gears.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Screams

 

And in the echoes of night,

Discarding my beastly dreams,

As darkness treads out of sight,

Seeking the source of my screams.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Craw

 

Your sharp eyes do spy mine,

Hiding in nests of straw,

Ravenously you dine,

‘Til I’m deep in your craw.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Utopia

 

Addicted and begging for more,

Twin pleasures of diplopia,

Of the nectarous fruits you bore,

A succulent utopia.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

A Minute

 

And on the tail end,

Lungs to take a rest,

A minute to lend,

As time stabs the chest.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Waiting

 

I waited a whole lifetime,

For such a beautiful sight,

As you blossom to your prime,

My eyes blinded by your light.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Daring

 

Ne’er my fragile heart to break,

See it in my daring eyes,

And my mind in the storm’s wake,

As it bursts with butterflies.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

The Road

 

Down the winding road,

Around the tight bend,

And as my pace slowed,

I did meet my end.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Writing

 

Your writing original,

A verse so lyrical,

Through meaning fictional,

With your words pitiful.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Rusting

 

A love that is rusting,

The long years did not spare,

These words so mistrusting,

Written with your affair.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Bittersweet

 

With a tart peach and an apple,

Splitting oh so delicately,

Sweeter spring in which to dapple,

Ne’er suckled so eloquently.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Self-Sabotage

 

Your love! A grand discovery!

But, these matters I do defer,

For I expose myself thusly;

My emotions are my saboteur.
