Truths

The rain pools in earnest
Trying to prove a point
Handed my heart, hide this
Summer is at an end
And I miss you
Your broken bravery
Like salted ocean
My tears on your chin
And I feel you
Upon my skin
Bruised and weakened by sin
Under savlon water
Long haired sea weed
Catches on handles and pulls
I let it
The pain is truth
You go where I cannot
Invitation not rendered
The spite
Still takes me by surprise
Dressed crept slowly like night
Not expecting sunrise
When
All truths see light

Fanciful, Fun and kinda Factual

I know I said you can take it
My life not worth much
But, I exchanged my ticket
When I decided not to not fight
Gave back the monkey’s paw
Off on a tangent
A tirade, a rant
The complainant
Complained on
Arguably, not wrong
But, she never did recant
An agent misunderstood
Intention well placed
Even the jury
Or a two faced liar
Could not decide
Which was prior
And, ran away to hide
While facts came down the wire
They Hid from view
Climbed ever higher
Until in a fall to death
Met the clean-up crew
From that height, it was
Unabridged spite
With so little remorse
Justice needed swerving
Enough to fill a landfill
I was just there,
Innocently observing
Then nervous as I saw my fate
I’d better get outta Dodgeville
Before they served me on a plate
In the end it does not matter
Who ate or who was serving
Someone must pay
It is nature’s way
And, aren’t we all deserving?
Start as you continue
Be careful what you say
Just as you enjoy the view
Someone says, “Outta my way…”
Be firm in your actions
So it can’t be misconstrued
If Your no stays no
And your yes is always yes
People come to count on it
And say,
“She’s innocent! Don’t be rude!”

Rumour Has It

Rumour has it
It got away
Rumour spoke
Took off today
It started small
Even Proportional
Rumour grabbed all
Ran with words
Even in whisper
Lean in so close
Unclear, but listen
If rumour claims it
Give up the ghost
Open the closet;
Let skeletons fall
While handed coat
Shown the door
Words cold & spiteful
Malicious slander
While standing shocked
A Truth Islander
A Capricious stranger
Your Secrets unlock
Rumour has it
And now it has you
Often it repeats
Often its true
And if Embellished,
Your Truth undressed
These petty deceits
As if you confessed
When rumour has it
Its no longer yours
Somehow it started
Somehow it falls
And nobody wins
Penultimate times
The story sings
Always three sides
But, If rumour has it
Then two of it is lies

You be hers, I’ll be fine

In my dream, I see you; smiling
Your eyes close, in ecstasy
You don’t see me
In my dream, I see her; smiling
Eyes open wide, in victory
She sees me
In that dream, I am less
She has you, will now possess
All that was once mine
I am forgotten, out of time
I am alone, I am a shell
You are hers, a calculated crime
She is your passion, she is my hell
She holds so gently, then pulls
Her fingers on your head
As you harden, my broken heart cools
In this dream, I see our bed
As bodies lift, invite desire
Once mine, now you’re her fire
Your hands, your fingers…
Your lips, love bites
You enter her, now new heights
I walk away, she knows she wins
She has you, a shiny new toy
This is no dream, I am fully awake
She can have you, a fleeting joy
I cannot stay, you made a mistake
Wish you were not…so easy to take
You be hers, I will be fine
When this is over
I will draw the line
There will be no compassion
I don’t care if you’re crying
Wipe your tears, like I wiped mine
Yes, You were hers, but I will be fine
