Backstabber

Eyes

Mesmerized,

Hearts bleeding

Silhouetting dreams

 

In the night 

You come creeping back,

Weakness explained

Boring needs

 

Marooned

On a desert isle,

Stab me in the back

And be done with it

Love is Overrated

The romance is brief, like

Walking on dispersing clouds

 

The passion overwhelming

You never expect the sky to fall

 

Tears stain the heart

The hurt never ends

 

Romantic love –

I have learned

 

Is not so romantic

After all

skybound

and we stretch our arms

skybound in effortless gain

where droplets fade

smashing hearts

against the ground

 

does the absence of war

indicate peace?

only time can bring clarity

to the soul

in confusion

Your Sign

Given your past

I don’t put it beyond you

To lie and cheat,

It is your trademark –

How you move on

To unsuspecting prey;

Tell them your sob-story

That rings pink and hollow now

As your soul

 

Fill your cup of love

Stir it with deceit

Sugar the promises –

And milk it for all you got.

Empty the cup

And throw it in the fireplace,

Let the shards melt

In your flaming,

Consuming hedonism 

In Remembrance

Will you remember me

When my time has come

And gone?

 

Windswept changes,

Ephemeral destiny,

We are

 

A lonesome cry

A flicker

That dies

 

Will you mourn my soul

When spirits escape

My eyes?

 

I ran through the fog

On borrowed time –

Never knowing my bearings

 

I stood alone,

We stood together,

It passed through my dreams

 

Will you remember me

Tomorrow,

Will you care?

 

I cared for you
