Poor Leach

Leave a comment

Poor Steve
he had a leach suck him dry
drink his blood
then slip away
leaving him sore, drained, depressed

Poor Jeff
he had a leach attached to him
it made him sick
took his soul
left him broke, hurt, drunk

Poor Wally
he had a leach called his daughter
it stole his money
dumped him in a home
left him to die alone and didn’t care

Poor Phillip
raised by a leach
begged him for money
then begged him for more
left him when he wouldn’t let the leach stay

Poor ex in law
invited the leach
so bitter and angry
letting the leach in
in order to feel better about herself

Poor leach
how hard it must be
to be so dependent
always looking for the next body to feed from

Poor leach
don’t attach to me
I’ll burn you off
you bring me nothing but pain and misery

From the Ashes

Leave a comment

When I think Love is dead
never to Love again
it rises from the ashes

When I give up all hope
and resigned to be alone
Love rises from the ashes

When I close my eyes and fear
that the end is very near
Love rises from the ashes

When I let go of the rope
to go down with the boat
Love rises from the ashes

Laying in bed, staring in the dark
listening to the hounds of hell back
Love rises from the ashes

My heart dead and cold
no one around to hold
Love rises from the ashes

Hateful words ringing in my ears
echoing through the years
Love rises from the ashes

Empty ache in my heaving chest
I failed life’s test
Love rises from the ashes

Music no longer plays
haven’t seen her in days
Love rises from the ashes

Sheets cold without her here
no longer is she near
Love rises from the ashes

Only one plate on the table
disbelieving Love’s fable
it rises from the ashes

I let the fire burn
waiting as I yearn
as Love rises from the ashes

Broken heart shards

Leave a comment

Your heart broke again and you throw the sharp pieces at me in anger
So many times you’ve cut me with the shards of your heart that’s shattered

Nicks and cuts oozing blood, soaking my clothes red as my head gets light
Your broken heart constantly shoved in my face and used to attack me as we fight

I tried valiantly to protect it, to guard it, to keep it safe from harm and damage
Your heart was already so damaged, so broken, so fragile it isn’t even sage in a carriage

Let alone out in the world dancing, drinking, promising to be strong and love me well
Still I tried to carry it through the storms and attacks from you, but sometimes I fell

Now my hands are shredded, glass embedded from all the fights and violent attacks
I can’t even carry all the brokenness of your heart as it crumbles and cracks

In my eagerness to love and desire to carry your heart and protect it I continue
Even though it’s slowly killing me while it pierces my flesh and slices my sinew

Untangle the Knot

Leave a comment

I can’t untangle this knot
too tight my finger bleed
to be free is what I really need
but my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
it binds me and keeps me stuck
as I lay face first in brackish muck
my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
though it painfully constricts my lungs
and my heart beats in my chest like drums
my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
while others grow and run and play
I remain tied to my misery every day
and my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
in anger I struggle against the ropes
until I collapse exhausted, bereft of hopes
because my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
it baffles me like a puzzle I cannot solve
a constant tension that cannot be resolved
still my efforts are for naught

I can’t untangle this knot
and resign myself to forever being bound
by my own demons who will always surround
because my efforts are for naught

I will never untangle this knot
