Eluded-Bullets Flying

Dangled words
pulled in
wrapped around warm
love is not here
though soon it shall return
as I begin to forget you.
The way your touch felt
when you skimmed your hand
across my naked skin.
The way your lips tasted
sweet summer wine
hay scented air
fires to brighten the night.
Dance with me
one more time
I begged
I pleaded
I could not understand
why you wanted to beat me.
In consequence
I failed myself.
I bled for you
allowed you into my head
into my bed.
As the year comes close
to when I was destroyed
I have to whisper:
Happy Anniversary
Am I ever glad I dodged that bullet.

Deadly Tumble

Twisted tongue
curdled words
hurled
willy nilly
not a one caring
the damage done.
I am so sorry.
I really did try.
Just…..
you were really horrid.
Bad in bed.
Bad in life.
Bad at love.
I could not last any longer
hanging around with you.
I slipped you a mickey
watched your eyes glaze over
took your hand
and out the door we walked
you were never coming back.
Walk along the cliff
I am on the inside
you closest to the edge.
When I stumble
you do not try to catch me
which makes it easy
to bump into you.
Cliff crumbling beneath clawed nails
you stare up at me
desperate
screaming for help
will I watched you.
Slowly step forward
watching you let go
slip
fall away
your body crumpled on the rocks.
