My Poetry

All We Need to Know of Hell

So empty.
Hollow and cold, with the chilling memories
Reminding me what was,
The ache in my heart telling me what is,
And the shadow of your smile
Taunting me
With what might have been.

Plucked like a flower, precious and new
From a tree with roots that span an eternity.
Only you have shared my yesterdays
And it hurts
To see who you've become.
To watch shadows darken eyes
That were meant to shine
And to see a heart so soft
Close against a pain I know
Started and Ended
With me.

So many things,
Like a boat in the desert
Or a cat in the ocean.
Where do we go from here?
Tears we've cried,
Words we've spoken
Can't be undone
And must somehow be survived.
