did you spend
last night digging
in my graveyard of a chest?
i seem to have a hole
this morning -
where did you put
your heart you
bitch, i know you
must have one there
and when the light lets
itself in through
my bedroom curtains,
i will always say
get fucked
fuck off
fuck you
go fuck up
someone else
do you still crack
your knuckles when you're
angry? take two
sugars with your
tea, carry a scythe?
well i carry the devil
in from the car when he's too
tired to walk, he tugs
at my sleeve with his little
red fists, says i know how
hard it is to get closure
on something
that makes you feel
ripped wide open, mate,
now carry me in i'm too
tired for all this tonight -
oh, one more thing
the shore can never leave
the sea
no matter how hard
it tries, again and
again, you're going to get
fucked by the current,
so just go with the flow
it gets better,
spend the rest of your
life laying in that
bed you made,
spend the rest of your
life letting love
leak out of your fingers

"the shore can never leave

beautiful!! I was writing in my mind last night something along similar lines...

His cliffs catch me as i break

Standing solid and strong

Leaning in against my violent thrashes

My mind comes and goes like the ebb and flow

of a current that swarms a heart who’s lost love

for self,

for life

standing solid and strong

only i can see how he trembles so

under the weight of the worry

that an unrelenting sea brings

i blanket him with my warmth

it goes unnoticed, for the most part

mistaken for servitude

of a soul so broken it scurries to bound the wounds of others

in hope that someday one will be brave enough

to peer inside and see through the cracks

to the shattered core that houses the love

that i reserve for him

yet i shall never utter those words

for fear they will wear down

those cliffs that stand so solid and strong

bearing the sorrow that i thrust upon them

in unspoken silence

he takes my head into his lap

and strands of my hair between his forefinger and thumb


the rhythmic sound


like being dragged across the sand

the shivers as he brushes my ear

ravage my body

goosebumps rush over me

this is bliss

and in this moment

the cliffs fall away

and the ocean recedes

all that is left is all that we are

stripped bare to our vulnerable souls

and nothing else exists

i breathe in the universe inside of him

as he does mine



and i wish it could all end here

I wish i had the guts to open my mouth

say how i feel

instead i choke as the words stick inside my throat

so i pray

that my heart will cease

So that i can take this moment with me

Fold it up

and carry it around in my breast pocket

for all of eternity

close to the gaping hole

where my gutless heart once sat
in unspoken silence
without the will to make its strings sing
the truth that could have set free
instead it sought the love it thought it deserved
but what about me?
didn't i deserve to be heard
didn't i deserve so much more
instead i let my tarnished heart
rule my world
render me mute
dying never knowing 
if he ever knew how i loved him so

did you know?

A true gift, your lips drip the bitter truths of our souls and our inner-most emotions. Indeed I enjoy every poem you produce and relish in its fine lines filled like the wine skins; to the brim, with their flavor bursting with liquid gold.

you must be a writer yourself...this comment is beautiful...almost as much so as the poem itself...
