Saving me


when I am gone

saved from feckless future dreams

freed from moving alone
all these years
within these rooms
in this house filled with hatred
fearing you punishing me
with your pulsating anger

you'll miss me - your broken toy
no longer able to play
your slow and cruel game
enjoying my screams
watching me burn, bleed & cry

I take it back
my stolen destiny is mine to destroy

this blade I now hold
a serrated savior
warm blood meets cold hate

willingly,
I seal my fate

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown
