Black Water

I would say I hate you

but I hate me more

I drained the bath water then dove headfirst

into remiss or a longing that’s called

a nightmare , the abyss

I siphoned the filth out of my weeping lungs

and choked on my bitter tongue

With that violent chasm

I sputtered half dead

and drowned the last little bit of sad

the proverbial baby and all that jazz

out with the dirty wash I thought you ‘d go

but then I heard you snoring  or wheezing or maybe reeling

as I rolled over and smothered that thought

of missing your lips and crushed that last regress

hard pressed though

to shed a tear this time

the wound it’s just too old

with now stone cold fingertips,

I  brushed  you off

then finally ,you go

Auvoir, kiss, kiss and


You’re gone




Just Leave

It hit me like a brick mess it ran red like that just too quick

when you called me out

for catching the feels

you said

You hated it for me

made yourself leave

but I told you didn’t I

What it was about to be

can I still be

Still be kinda sorry

That it got weird the

instant you stayed

and I kind of liked it

I mean I liked you

Before …

when you’d leave


The Deep

I keep a drawer of you

With memories  collected

from the thousands of years

it seemed it took to know you

And yet I still feel

like you are a stranger

It’s stranger to me

The depth that holds

the best part of you

And no one else

will know who you were

Who you were to me

It keeps you busy in my mind

Even though I’m not

Any part of yours





Everyone knew that

The god of the sea would be

Fiercely strident with his trident

Is there anyone who wants to go

head to head and be his foe ?

Not me , Neptune

Not me !

I’m just another chicken

In this rough sea…
