Eloping - A Cinquain

When you

Said forever

You made a broken man

Come back from the edge of the void

“I do”

No one
knows for sure what
is behind the green door
but there are some who say it is
not good.

Solar System

reborn
twenty nine years
a shadow sun rises
i wait for my lungs to begin
to breathe
 
i am
a funeral
you are making my bed
tuck me into eternity
restless
 
 
father
offspring, lost cause
whose blood is on whose hands?
we are the same yet not the same
orphan
 
lover
you are to me
a mysterious touch
desire refuses to die
heart sick
 
deferred
hope malignant
infected by absence
my mind is circling a thought
decay...

Good friend
Too long not seen
For your scent left longing
Smiles and tender hugs sorely missed
Be well

He Is Mine – A Cinquain Poem

The guy
Who brought me sun
Brighter than the sparkling
Ocean waves that were once my home
Is mine.

Roses – Cinquain Poem

Roses
The color of
Red wine and the fragrance
Of perfume, its delicacy
Within.

Lost soul
Dreaming the dream
Living among the damned
Lustful desires hellbound spirit

I hide
forever in dark
to watch your secret life
and know all of your dirty crimes
I weep

The gun
just fired once
I thought I needed it
to protect myself from myself
good-bye

Some part
of my soul died
that night that you left me
now the rest decays bit by bit
empty

So far away
Too much sky between us
I can always find you one place
in dreams

I knelt
to pray to her
the alter was quite warm
the Host on the tip of my tongue
She sighed
