I was always digging up the gold
Up out of the shadows
Of Love grown cold,

Mining the veins of precious blood
Thinking all I did was doing some good -
Old dreams new love.

Staring in the mirror at some distant kiss,
The parting glass, the goodbye bliss,
The cold blue lips,

Toiling there the two-backed beast -
I guarantee no-one resists, in this
Persists the myth.

But there's no happy ending,
A slave's a slave. No more
The delusion in pretending
There is joy in the cure -

I have always groomed for the ****,
Putting pressure on the will,
Be calm, be still.

But I've never loved prey more-so
Than when it fights me blow for blow,
The best Hello,

For the outcome is an anarchy of time -
They, It, What-ever, will be mine,
I'll be defined.

When I am gone from this Poetry
It will be read, I will be yet memory -
Know this of me.

With a logic of indisputability, know this of me,
My hunger will pull your fate to me
Inevitably,

There is no happy ending,
A slave's a slave for sure -
No illusion in pretending
It will be for your pleasure,
Never, not ever a cure!

I was too slow for you, honey,
Like cold honey.
You never grew tired
Spinning your wheels, burning your tires.
Now look, it didn't take long
Because you've already said "So Long".
On the floor when we'd lie,
I guess you were always just a lie.
It isn't something I miss,
I just need to know if I was once your only Miss.
I think probably not.
I think it was all for naught.

Today, like many days
My special friend in study hall
Asks me why I am not dating you

He tells me that when we broke up
It broke his heart
Because he loved us being together

So he recently told me
That while he knows
We are with other people

He has been secretly
Or not so secretly
Trying to get us back together

By telling each other
When we are near
In hopes that we will talk

Now, this is extremely embarrassing
Considering I am very awkward around you
And you don't want to see me anyway

But I put up with it
Because I love him
And I know you do too

He told me that he wants us to be together
Because he said he loves me
And he loves you too
Even though you are a "womanizer" who drives a gas guzzler

And he wants the two people
He loves
To love each other

But every time He says this
I have to remind him
That not everything is perfect

Like how he says sometimes Tesla cars catch on fire
Despite their fuel efficiency
And stylish appearance

And even though University of Kentucky
Has an amazing basketball team
They still have 92% coal emissions
Only if you know him, you will understand
Yours et cetera Mar 2014
Eyes in hues of green and gold
Mesmerizing flecks to which
My gaze was stubbornly fixated

Crimson lover and ebony spirit,
Why did you me so
Hungry and bereft?

We met one cold December hour
And your voice indelibly painted
An awe-inspiring tapestry
Upon the hollow corridors
Of my heart

You said Yes
I remember the very gasp

Even the nuances of your
Angelic voice
I have committed to memory

But nothing cripples your will
Like the magnetic pull
Of a golden-tressed *****

Oh, how you covet,
How you steal and you gorge
You pummeled me down
Into an abyss of no return

But when my ashes are strewn
Across the vast fields
Of God's Heaven

They will not remember me
Or my mangled remains

For I am just another victim
Of your sagacious convictions

A singular pearl
On a long string of beads

So pure but marred
A beauty but scarred

They will admire
And exalt to the skies

They will bellow their song
To the thousands listening

But they will also weep
A funeral march so poignant

Dew drops from their eyes
Awaken the fallen

And with them I rise
Just a few words about this lustful, womanizing ****.  I'll love him forever.

— The End —
