Poem a day challenge #7 delete

if it causes pain why hold on
delete
if it brands your soul why hang on
delete
if it eats you up why bite
delete
if it poisons your well being why hesitate
delete
if it suffocates why continue
delete
if it makes you feel less than human why permit
delete
if it makes you feel shit why admit

Loss

for Dee
Beethoven’s unfinished symphony ear of Van Gogh that
fav earring misplaced ne’er found
loss echoes resounds
whirling eddying pebble cast ripples profound
haunting waking sleepless nothing moments
taunting
Pain access all areas nil by mouth dulled once
razor sharp spiking drilling for oil soul’s ocean
secret depth buried treasure wreck core what
it means to be human suffering is all how to bear
with dignity hope till last drop wrung universal language
no phrasebook dictionary required tears UN interpreter
Mourn what I had childhood that ne’er was innocence
faith hope trust naivety ignorance is true bliss I envy
gift for head in sand a comforting safe place to
repose cease be
Like the days magical eagle soaring woman I was
aspired crispy Autumn leaves crunching beneath our feet
decaying crumbling merging whence it came moon waning
full crescent half eclipse tide rushing in out so I let go of
myriad loss that unfinished business called
life

Love

towards the end we lay careful

not to touch and

you said maybe love is not

enough

i thought if love is not

enough

what is

perhaps

it is

you simply didn’t recognise

mistook it for something else

you were not ready for the gift

one day you may realise

grass is not greener on the other side

what you tastes is diluted

love

feel a pang of regret

know

you’ve been a

fool

Kindness of strangers

Memory Lane

Quelque chose belle

Uninvited

Uninvited you
Sneaked into the crack of my soul
Hijacked my heart
Shared my bed
Without permission you
Were gone
No word no signal
Left with the remnants of grief
Wondering if you were ever real

They say

Tomorrow

Tomorrow
I will swallow
All sorrow
Tomorrow
I will borrow
Courage not
Wallow
Tomorrow

Last to know

The Last To Know
 
Why Oh Why
was I the last to know
 
Could you not have left a note on
the fridge text e-mail
 
FAO Gorgeous
FYI
 
Love has resigned effective
Immediate relinquished holiday
pay in lieu of notice no need to
fill vacancy
 
Why Oh Why
was I the last to know
