Rows at bedtime





Shivering
Alone
Sat in darkness.
Heart drumming an angry beat
I hate you
Jaw clenched
Determined 
“Never to give in.”
Exhausted
Desperate for bed
Longing 
to sink within its warmth
completely wrapped in softness.
To lay down my head
allow myself to tumble
into deep slumber.
Then I smile
I hear it
You
No, not calling my name.
Nor attempting to be friends
No, just you 
snoring like a pig.
And I know its safe
to come back.

Sunshine After The Rain






Morning sunlight smiles upon the land.
Green fields 
sweet summer grass 
glistening.
Waves of wild flowers
flourishing. 
The evening rain fall
making everything new.
The air feels soft 
mellow.
A sky so blue
filled with birdsong. 
The river high and opaque
as it meanders past.
A lane in motion.
Crows calling from on high
as I watch the lone Buzzard fly.
Trees filled with age and wisdom 
whisper through new leaves
“We love you, you are not alone.”

Fake Friend






With every slippery,
syrupy word 
released from your mouth.
I trust you less.
Dislike you more.
Where you born to be fake,
or just a cultivated whore?


"Better and honest enemy, than a false friend"- German Proverb

I Have To Let Go






Take your hand off me
let me go.
Touch that burned with passion
now cold
angry 
with contempt.

Stomach sickens
skin shudders
shrinks
beneath them
frantic for release.

Where is the love?
Once felt
now only said 
unconsciously repetitive.

When did it leave?
Our mutual need
allowing pain to move in.
Abandoning the soul 
suffocating within.

I have to let go of whats killing me, 
even if it kills me to let you go.
