Moral Low Ground

IMG_20170626_103341

And I’m mostly good ..mostly kind

But with you and because of you

I have dabbled in bold

Submerged my clean slate in mud

Oh but for those moments of bliss and shakes

Will I spend eternity with the snakes?

And if  I believe in God will She forgive me?

Why should She though?

I knew it was wrong.

But She gave me these earthly wants

I mean She pushed us together didn’t She?

And who did we really harm?

Is that the point?

Better the devil you know

But she doesn’t know.

She doesn’t know.

I do.

Lug

IMG_20170625_174512

You don’t know it but I still lug you around

Close to the ground

You weigh more than you should and I still don’t know why

And sometimes when I least expect it

You fall on the floor

All the remnants of what we were

Lie scattered about for all to see.

I’m getting better though

Better at packing you away.

At folding all those wrinkles out.

And someday(when I’m ready)

I will leave you behind in on a train

And you will be the one who is lost.

One Liner

narrative-794978_1920You tricked me into adoring you
You whispered songs in my ear and kissed my neck
I thought you were a gift 
And in those moments I can see 
That I rewrote my life for you
And even though I lost the plot
I worked you into my lines
Twisted you through the verses of my ways.
So now that you can walk past me in the street
Without a blink.Without a wink.
I wonder were our pages ever filled?
I called you an eraser before
But now I think you're highlighter.
Because you have shown me the errors of my ways
And though it has been ages and ages
I'm ready to remove you from my pages.

Unfurling

womens-2359634_1920
I broke the corners of my soul 
And gave you those lonely edges
They tasted like me you said
Mostly good but tainted with need.
'Is that bad?' I said.
'Needing?'
You laughed.
'It will be your undoing.'
You were right of course.
And as I unfurl the remainder of my curled up love
I see it is blackened by our plight.

FeelineĀ 

And nobody mourned her death

Except for a single white rose that bobbed in the wind

And from the corner of my eye reminded me of her return in the morning

Soft and cautious on the gravel

Her miaow catching the wind

Her little soul my only companion on many a rainy day.

Quiver

You are barely a quiver on my lip now

Just a sliver of a frown upon my face

The faintest dribble in the corner of my eye

Half a heart murmur on a summer day.

And in a while when all my cells renew

You won’t even be an atom in my soul.

Blue

sunset-2186385_1920

Blue is our colour

Pools of sapphire that light up your face

And my day.

Your soft cerulean jumper.

That I long to touch but never do.

The azure oceans where one day we might swim

But probably never will.

The kind of movie our lovemaking would inspire

Set the world on fire

Put out with my indigo tears.

Yes it’s definitely our colour

And it’s certainly mine

That glacial feeling

When I have to leave

The colour of a dying heart on my sleeve.
