The Lie

Between the things we thought were missed And the ones we never find, lie dreams that pile on bucket lists And a life that’s lived confined. Between the chances we held in fists And the risks that we declined, lie fires dying in ash of what-ifs, And a fate to which we feel resigned. Between... Continue Reading →

Confection

Sweet Betelgeuse, if love could be measured in a cup, I’d give you nine plus a half, put aside seven for the rest and keep nothing for the one I keep failing to forget. But as it stands tonight, like it did yesterday, he, with all his defects - of which, there are countless to... Continue Reading →

Killing

So now that you have found your little corner that’s bustling with ingratiating voices you so dearly adore, dressed in intricately woven tulle and fine muslin Their fawning lips keep screaming, “Encore!” Isn't it everything you wanted and still, so much more? So now that you have killed me, granted, for the umpteenth time Looks like this... Continue Reading →

Hush

Once a chaos of salacious minds Brought forth a deluge of heady rush Happily drowning Father Time We unveiled currents of sensual flush Alas, Change inflicted the usual crime Now, trimming rationality out of Mush I burn my throat, sucking on lime To be rid of this lingering taste of heart-breaking Hush. © EntangledDesigns

She

She - by yours truly Each day she comes home & carefully closes the door behind, locking the feral World outside. With each heavy step, undressing her tired self, she lets the walls in her mind dissolve, letting the pain come crawling forth, addressing each stinging nerve of hurt. Sitting all alone in her own little nook of solitude, she arches her back and with a deep... Continue Reading →

Burden

Whispers of love riding sweet Ocean breeze perforates thresholds of distance, ringing bells impatiently Waving message in bottles of poetic strophe washes up the heart's coast, hoping to be read eagerly, But I, forever leery, dare not answer Keeping this tumultuous fervor for you anchored For I can stand your blame, your resentment, your anger...

Stains

Bourbon spilled wood that decorates the bones of these lowly places you avoid, knows how many tears I've been leaving behind. Mascara has been running unchecked, while the glass has painstakingly memorized the weak grasp of my cold trembling hands, traced the tremors of my mumbling lips. I let them fall - the angry tears -unabashedly letting anyone see through the rift...
