puddle

she left my heart
laying there
a puddle of yuck
and hurt and love
and sorrow and joy
and pain and beauty
all jumbled up into a
giant, messy, gross, disgusting
puddle.
how will i ever
clean up this mess?

demonstration

Tthe demonstration he was giving was so boring, it nearly put me to sleep. That is, until the handsome demonstrator looked right at me and gave a me a smile and a wink, and did a little call me sign. Hmm…maybe I should have listened to what he was saying after all.

clue

i haven’t got a clue
as to how this life
is supposed to play out
i do know
that i’m really tired, though
of trying to figure it out

epic

this journey has been epic
the paths we have traveled were
interesting, difficult, fun, adventurous
not always happy, we journeyed together
i’d hoped for a love affair just as epic
as our journey together
but alas,
a friendship was all there was,
at best
i tried to make it enough
i failed
left without love nor friend
sometimes i miss our journey
i miss my friend

wagon

I watched the little girl pull her wagon down the sidewalk
the summer sun blushing her cheeks and dancing in her eyes.
She stopped every few feet, bent over, and stared
then perhaps would pick something up,
examine it, and deem it worthy of a ride in her wagon.
When she came near, I shouted to her,
“little girl, what are you collecting?”
She smiled big and held her open palm
up to the sky so I could see them.
“Treasures!” she exclaimed.
“I’m collecting treasures!”
she turned back toward her destination
and went about her way
her and her wagon-full of treasures.

hoop

dance little puppet
dance
jump little minion
jump
through the hoops
everyone
do what i say
and perhaps i will give you
the attention that you crave
i do as she asks
eager for my reward
but instead she gives
me more of the same
and i realize that this
clown mask
has permanently
stained my face

beehive

she laughed a joyous laugh
her wrinkled skin
decorated in brilliant colors
the yellow-ish gold beehive
spun carefully about her tiny head
looked like a crown
she was the queen of her universe
how wonderfully
life must have treated her
i felt pride and envy
simultaneously
what a beautiful soul

fences

mending fences
broken fences
picket fences
jumping fences
pipe dreams
all of them
i’ll stick to the fences of
barbed-wire
i’ve constructed around
my heart

below

she put herself below me
no matter how hard i tried
to bring up next to me
what i was
who i am
what i did
was always too much for her
constantly comparing herself
feeling smaller and smaller
so she fell farther and farther
below me
until the only way i could help her
was to leave

accordion

he played his accordion with passion
pushing and pulling the large instrument easily
as if he were guided by an other-worldly force
to most he looked ridiculous
cradling this monstrosity in his arms like a baby
but the look on his face
and the life that radiated in his eyes
spoke of his need to create
his melodies
smiling, our spirits connected
he knew that I understood

bench

i sat on a bench in the park this afternoon
tired, lifeless, sad
children were running about
playing, laughing, living
the sweet smell of autumn
drifted through the air
and i remembered
as i watched them now
that i too was once like them
i too and laughed and played
i smiled with these memories
then i rose from my bench
sat on an empty swing
and hurled myself into the air
back and forth
just like i did when i was young
and i remembered what it felt like
to be alive again

crisp

the crisp winter winds
chill me to the bone
i used to detest this feeling
wanting to run from it
but now
there is a sort of comfort in it
i have accepted this chill
the changing of the seasons
after a lifetime of leaving
i embrace this chill
I am finally home

sparkling

the sun fell down around her
she was sparkling like diamonds
i couldn’t look away
didn’t want to
i needed to have her
feel her
touch her
it was love
it had to be
the way her beauty
captivated me

savage

the way he ripped her heart from her chest
threw it to the ground
and left her to wither and die
was nothing short of savage
but she wasn’t having any of it
she knew she was stronger than that
so she picked up her heart
brushed it off
gave it a kiss
and put it back inside of her
his loss, she said
his loss

lilies

she picked the lillies
stuck them in her hair
and danced about
in the golden sunshine
the warm, fragrant air
circled her
intoxicated her
as she reveled in this place
in peace and love and freedom
she knew that this
was where her soul
had been living

dozen

there are a dozen reasons why
i shouldn’t fall in love with you
but do you think my heart really cares?
that’s why i can’t help it
i love you
and that’s the only reason that matters

apron

she wears her apron
blue and white checked
her uniform
the symbol of her wife-ly duties
she does what she has to do
wishing sometimes
to be rid of this piece of cloth
and of the responsibilities
it carries
she wishes she were free

estate

she managed her estate, down to the last detail, leaving nothing to chance. she didn’t want them to worry about anything when the time came, not that they were even aware of the fact that the end was near. her end would be shock enough for them all.

bridge

i’d like to build a bridge
between who i was
and who i am now
but some things
are better left
alone
it’s all just water
underneath

desert

my life feels like a desert
lonely
barren
dusty
brown
no friends
i stay in my house
my family
is my oasis

carved

i carved her initials into my arm
tiny pools of blood dripped to the floor
but none of it mattered
she’s not my girlfriend anymore

deaf

the silence between us
became so deafening
i could no longer hear her
pathetic cries for attention

hurry

i’m in a hurry
to get my life back
to get things in order
to be in love again
to see you
to finally start living my life
and to be done with the past
i’m in a hurry
but time isn’t moving fast enough
or maybe it’s just me
that isn’t.

flood

thoughts of him
would flood her mind
her heart
her body
overcome with him
she felt herself drowning
he was her only
life preserver
she needed saving
from him
but only by him.

dusk

the veil drawn now
this time
between my daylight face
and my night time reality
i struggle with who i really am
who i should be
what my life is
when the sun moves to meet the moon
at dusk

view

the view
from where I’m sitting
is complicated
perplexing
exciting
new
and oh so very beautiful
i love looking
at you

sneaky

hidden in plain sight
she kept her affairs secret
but made no attempt
as delved deeper into him
she thought she was sneaky
hiding her words, her trysts, her looks,
but i could read her like a book
the sordid nasty novel that she was,
and i was sneaky too
uncovering all that she thought she hid.

marble

black and white
swirled together
our souls
a marble of our lives
who we are
interconnected
in need you
as much as you need me

horses

wild horses take me away
run fast and far
to another place
wide open space
somewhere i’ve never been
a place I long to be
wild horses take me please
i beg for freedom
for emptiness
for nothingness
wild horses let me roam free
empty these thoughts
as we ride
careless free
no destination
take me
wild horses
to where i need
to be.

left

i left her,
the bullshit,
her cheating
her childish ways
i left my life
i left my car and my pets and my computer
i left everything i thought was going to be but never was
i left her
but came back to me
