Poetry Today

Sometimes Love is Eternal

I’ve had enough

I’ve wiped my hands clean

The breaking is evident

I’ve loved and lost

I’ll clean up the mess

You’ve made of me

My bones are weeping

Begging me to look inward

To step in from the cold

To let you go

If only my bones know

That I’ve been loving you

Since the dawn of time

And sometimes love

Is eternal

Poetry Today




Confused mind


Left to wander


Sky of grey doves and black roses

Midnight petals and empty graves

Pressed my soul

Between the unsavory

distaste of love

Find me


Among the thorns©

Poetry Today

Betrayal, the final blow

Walk away
Without looking back
Leave a trail
Of brokenness
In the aftermath
Of your betrayal

I will let you walk
Into the heart of darkness
There you will stay
Carrying your destiny
Tied to your callous heart

Go away from me
Let not my eyes
See your face
Our story is over
My hands are washed

Final sentiments
Written in blood
The gift of knowledge
The power in knowing
When to let go
Is right now

Walk away this day
We are no longer joined
A broken union
A chapter ending
Wasted gift, signed, sealed
And discarded
