Part of You

Powerful words shared by a talented writer.


I lay my head down on silence like a pillow
The dreams are stagnant
His lies are foul
My hope sluggish
I cling to love like a parasite
And without sight

Envy is black moss
Ivy-thick doubt
Twines twisting around his silhouette
I watch clouds form from longing
Rolling thunderous covetous hands
Prying into my desires like butter
The wind is brewing strong regret

Quick strikes of lightning when world’s collide
If only nightmares were soft satin slippers
One could wear proudly his crown
It’s lost underground with the thicket

I have two shadows
And not one to trust

I yield to confusion
I give him skeleton keys to my home
A disorderly garden wrought with weed
Tall are worries
Watch him stall
Even the moon grows anxious and full

If I turn quickly I might spot a ghost
Rummaging through heartache
With fingers dripping from ink and mud
