Incy Wincy

Torpedo love bore holes in my comfortable life
Now I can’t remember how I ever enjoyed being alone
Torpedo love, blew away the cobwebs in my soul.
But there is still a spider. Incy. Wincy.
Ever so slowly. Ever so softly.
Torpedo love turned me to goo
But the arachnid is you.
Too late now for me. Too late.
I cannot move. I can feel its breath.
Torpedo love is made for death.

Donkey Brain

I’m better with just a whisper of you in my life

The feint tinge of your delicious breath on my neck

Any more of your air and I don’t care

About me. About them.

About anything.

Just a whisper of potential is the carrot to my donkey brain

Stops me going insane.

Too much of you is a gas chamber

A clamber to get out.

The overwhelming sensation of being overcome.

So don’t shout. Don’t talk.

But if you must.

Whisper. Whisper. Whisp…

Bitch

There’s a grimy,slimy trail you leave

When you touch my face

It sticks to me for weeks and I can’t shake that sludge

It won’t budge

You slither away under a rock

And I whither in the heat

Deplete. You deplete me.

Repeat.

I keep doing it over and over.

“You can’t teach an old dog ” and all that

I guess I’m a mutt because I’m certainly no bitch.

Only to myself.

Witch Way

witch-949055_1920

Can I dabble in you?

Stick my spoon in and sift through the liquids of your soul?

Your cauldron will bubble

Skin, nails, stubble.

I will scoop at the good bits make them float to the top

But just as you boil over

I will stop.

Simmer. Simmer. Simmer.

You know I go witch way.

That the follicles of your heart

Are mine to control

Along with your soul

And every other inch.

Pinch. Pinch. Pinch.

A bit of this and that

Added to the mix

Stirring you up

You’re froth. Broth.

Moth to my flame.

Bubble. Bubble. Pop.

Trick of the light

A trick of the light silly
When you thought you saw a halo
When you felt the piercing heat, smolder the bones of you.

Oh you knew it even then but you ignored the refracted value of the words that lit up your life.
And then when the clouds came
You feigned surprise as though you had forgotten your jacket not cast it aside.

Silly girl.

I see goosebumps on your arms and shadows in your hair.

No it’s not fair.

Some can bend the rays to their own devices

While you are left in cold,cold slices.

Ham it up all you want.

Pretend you got a fright.

You knew it all along

The tricks of your delight.

Stop

Stop. I need to stop.

When my heart steals away in the night

Time travelling back to your hands in my hair

Stop.

I need to quench this thirst for memories

I am laden down with heavy baskets full of the past.

How can I move when every finger is weighed down?

I trudge through the days without you.

And I think I must have seen myself back then when you held me in the night.

I’m pretty sure it was me , sitting in corner looking sad.

Stop.

But how do I do it ?

Learn, when all I do is yearn ?

Smile without wincing?

Is there a potion made to numb ?

Now I understand gin.

You win.

I’m glass and always was and you’re the stone that landed in this vessel.

Tomorrow is another day..

Without you.

Add Hiss

This is a follow on from my previous poem “Add Bliss” . Oh how wrong was I 😀 !!

Hoot. Hoot.

You can’t even give me two.

You emptied me out.

Gentle and slow.

I didn’t even know.

How could I ?

You’re a thief and sculpture.

Vulture.

Taking truth and shaping it so divine

I couldn’t help but pine..

Over you.

I’m over you.

I tell myself this silly tale

As tall as what you told me.

But I’m not as good at fibs

And all I can do is cringe.

Over and over at my pathetic need

For you to miss. Miss. Miss me.

Remember our kisses ?

They’ve all turned to hisses.

No bliss. No bliss. Just blood.
