Oubliette & Other Poems

 

The Return

Take my hand and bend to kiss me
Tell me that you’ll always miss me
Then take the road and go.

I can’t cure this deadly sorrow
Blood turns black, there’s no tomorrow
So take the road and go.

Lost my heart and hope is fleeting
See the end in each new meeting
So take the road and go.

Take away this crippling weakness
Love will shatter spirit’s meekness
Forget the road and stay.
 

All These Months

All these months and I
I’ve been working out too
Trying to forget about you.

All these months and I
I bought new shirts and ties
Trying to forget your eyes.

All these months and I
I let my hair grow long
Trying to forget you’re gone.

All these months and I
I could have died
But I’d still be
prettier than you inside.
 

Oubliette

The bygones are gone – Bye.
The sleeping dogs left to lie.
Ghosts laid – now laid to rest.
Out of sight is for the best.
