Notes on a Suicide (Poetry)

Let me linger for a moment

Let me remember

Let me find wisdom in the waves

Let me drown in it.

***

I can hear the water curling at the seams

pockets, pockets, full of stones

a walk, a hop, a body it seems

floating lifeless in the water

and lifeless it drifts to shore

The Giving Tree, Part 1 (Poetry)

newprint1_3

You were always the one

you always took precedence

over everything

my soul

my heart

and yet you remain quiet

absent and defiant

why?

what have i done?

 

Did I hurt you

–on purpose?

Did I make you feel small

–on purpose?

Was it my silence?

My disregard?

My carelessness?

Answer me.

Spurn (Poetry)

womanwithchild2_58

Are you really worth the trouble

The wait

The glory and the devotion?

Are you a religion

A god, my God?

My savior and redeemer?

 

Like a seed

Implanted in rich soil

You sprout out tendrils

That reach out;

they come at me

With knives,

they hold me hostage

 

You play with my emotions

And what a cruel thing to do—

Who the fuck do you think you are?
