Love was bright
Until Love met Doubt
Doubt taunted and mocked
Doubt belittled and chastised
Until Love passed away 
Doubt didn't care
Love was dead
Until Doubt met Hope 
Hope rekindled and regrew
Hope strenthened and fortified 
Until Love was reborn
Hope didn't care
Love was bright 
Until Love met Doubt

Nothing left
A heart that no longer beats 
I'm cold
I'm stone
Six feet under
Everything signaling
A life that was 
Reached for the wizard's hand
And let him steal the
Life force
Until there is
Nothing left

Make me 
Claim me
Polish me until 
I shine 
In your light 
Take the flame 
That's yours
And fan it into 
An inferno
Turn me into 
A piece of you
You can't imagine
Living without

Discarded toy 
No one wants you
No one looks for treasures
In the landfill
Abandon hope
This is your home now

The Driftwood Doll

I still sense you
To think a lighthouse 
Could ever be hidden
Proves your folly
The rocks below call 
And beg
For my soul to be dashed
But I'm trying to
Navigate the best I can
The ugly and cold sea

Tattoo your music
Across my heart
Never let
Listen to the pieces of my soul
Echoing in you
Moving and still
Electric and peaceful

Tin Tank

A thing
For play
To command how you wish
Enjoy what's yours
Rough or calm
The thought of your
Heat makes me melt
Own me 
Use me 
Get me off 
Heal me
Then lie about your love

Lessons Learned in Limbo

I can't move forward.
I'm left locked in a filthy 
Cage without a key.

Low Tide

Alone and naked
On the beach
All I can do is 
Remain abeyante and 
Stare at the line 
In the sand
The one you drew
The one you established
The one you walked away from 
I followed every rule
I completed every task
You called me 
You claimed me
You said I was perfect
So why am I 
Alone and naked
On the beach

Remember her Place

To be reminded
a girl has no place
she is not special
Or unique 
There is nothing about her
That anyone cannot find
Somewhere else 
she gets replaced 
Over and over
she is nothing
she is trash
she has been thrown away
she waits on her shelf
Until she is used again

Dear Copperfield

Maybe I was that dumb
Always is a powerful word
Going against my head
I would have
Crossed countries for you

Love Left Blind Behind

Turn it off
You'll get over it
A million other 
Dismissive phrases 
But I've grieved for so long
I've forgotten that anything
Else exists
Then I wonder who it is
That really died
You or me
The thought
Becoming irrelevant
Because the outcome
Remains the same

That inner calm
I used to know
That peace 
That confidence
Reduced to ash
The bitter, acrid stench
Of lies and deceit 
Makes me vomit 
Over and over
Purging whatever feeling
I had left
I'm stranded here
No one
Could possibly want
The empty shell
This masterpiece you created
