red ,red ,red


blood red is the absolute best

it means I missed a piece

and dead is not yet

blood red is pain

Painfully raw

It feels like you on my neck

That last regret

a sad mistake

but not the boarding call

you thought the end would bring

But worse yet

is what is true

And always will be

The truth of me and you

The last toast ,

The sighing ghost

The curtain closing

on your laughter

Black Water


I would say I hate you

but I hate me more

I drained the bath water then dove headfirst

into remiss or a longing that’s called

a nightmare , the abyss

I siphoned the filth out of my weeping lungs

and choked on my bitter tongue

With that violent chasm

I sputtered half dead

and drowned the last little bit of sad

the proverbial baby and all jazz

out with the dirty wash I thought you ‘d go

but then I heard you snoring  or wheezing or maybe reeling

as I rolled over and smothered that thought

of missing your lips and crushed that last regress

hard pressed though

to shed a tear this time

the wound it’s just too old

with now stone cold fingertips,

I  brushed  you off

then finally ,you go

Auvoir, kiss, kiss and

Away…then

You’re gone
