Love Song #1015

I would say I’m pretty.

But ducking mirrors isn’t accidental,

There’s scars on my temples that aren’t ornamental.


I would say I’m raw.

That my flesh needs the warmth of yours to subsist,

But I’m just a child, and children persist.


I would say I’m fulfilled.

But patience and loving is all in the past,

I fought the riptide and sunk at half-mast.


But your smile was enough.

Had you held it a moment I would have forgot,

The heartbreak, the anguish, to hell with the lot.

  1. My sleepless nights and his silence
    All caged in his heart…
    And key to his heart
    Wipes off with my tears
    And his insanity
