Secret Agenda

image

 

There’s no such thing
as accidental deception.

Intentional misrepresentation of self
is based solely on personal agenda.

Wish not granted (yet)

image

 

I wanted it
to be over today.
I wanted April 17 2017
to be the day I was set free.

Free of you.
Free of the torture
I had to relive daily
in my minds eye.

Free of all the pain
you caused our family
all those years ago.

Seeing your face
made me relive the horror.
Hearing your voice
stirred up 6 years of emotions.

Your twisted words
revealed that
your disturbed mind
still needs healing.

I wanted it
to be over today,
but it’s not.

Poetry

Back To One

image

 

Slowly find her way
Back to the place where she began.
Slowly finding her way
Back to a life without her best friend.

Slowly finding her way
Back to a world that’s incomplete.
Slowly finding her way
Back to one,  no more ‘we’.

Poetry

Not a good idea

image

 

Beef stew at 12am
Was probably
Not a good idea.

But when heartache
Takes away the appetite,
Comfort food fills the void.

It doesn’t judge.
It simply does its job.
It understands!

Poetry

Obsolescence

image

 

The music
Has lost its meaning.
The rhyme
Has lost its reason.

The smile
Is gone from her face.
The memory of him
Can’t be replaced.

What was all
Of the effort for?
Why build a foundation
They now ignore?

None of this
Makes a bit of sense.
How to move on
While stuck in past tense?

Can’t shake the feeling
Of abstract existence.
Not sure where she belongs
Inside obsolescence.

Poetry

Indifference cuts deep

image

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
No one thought to ask
If she was ok.

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
Her words  were just
For their entertainment.

It hurts to know
That in her darkest hour
Their indifference proved
Her loneliness was real.
