Love gone awry

Sometimes I go a little crazy
a wee bit mad
making all my castles
with quicksand.
Sometimes I dance little jigs
and you cannot see
where once there was harmony
now we have strife.
Angry words disposed to bite
left me nothing to do
but cry bitter tears
and feel ashes in my mouth.
I have loved you
and hated you.
I have cursed your name
for the damaged touch
while you played your game.
Living beneath a cloud of darkness
wrapped in a shroud of pain
I yearn for the bright sunlight
yet walk alone trapped in anguish
unable to break away.

I’m Sorry…..so very sorry

When I met you our time was so brief

but a moment in our present

that quickly became the past,

a silent kiss of desire hidden within a secret.

It was you I turned to during times of trouble

and even from afar

you strove to be my hero,

you worked to build my dreams.

I filled my head with thoughts of fancy

waiting and biding my time

til boredom and neglect

did make me seek out others.

The pain inflicted

wanting and yet trying so hard

to remain true and dear

when really, all you had to do was beckon.

I sowed my truth

and now must pay

for although I offered penence

you did not come near.

I lost you to delay

to fates interception

I lost more than you

I lost a way of life.

I am sorry.

I broke your heart.

I made you feel so low.

I made myself a prize for second place.

Good bye.

Til once more we meet

maybe this time will be different

maybe this time I can reopen your heart.
