I thought that love shone from your eyes

until the day I saw through the looking glass

glimpsed the backwards brain inside

realised that narcissism knows no bounds

you’d be gazing in still waters forever

Are you jealous

Of the space between us

Filled with darkness

And twinkling stars


Bereft of passion

The green patina of sarcasm

Lobs my way


Have you forgotten

All those years

Reduced to a mere photograph

Safekept under glass



In an unmanned




Why did you build that bomb

The one that divided us

A mushroom cloud of discontent

Hovering overhead


As our atom split

Turning two into too many nights

Alone and cold in the dark

I tried to seek a sign up above

Past an endless sky without light


Finally I ask myself am I the one

Am I jealous of the space between us

Of the fragile photograph kept under glass


Was it me who built that bomb

Did I hover in discontent

Watching as we split

Lonely in this silo in the dark

The Lack of Poetry

with a hole in my heart

where words are supposed to fit

I yearn for missing poetry

from someone never met


one day my heart will be consumed

eaten by this unfed hunger for more

all that poetry will be lost

smashed against my empty ribs in transit

from one hollow space to another


I will remain a sack of bones in skin

cushioned with fat so no one can see

the lack of me inside of me

the lack of me in your poetry

Love Revealed

his drawings of women                                           women

reveal more than himself

his soul guiding the pencil

sketching in every shade

such complexity in single strokes

this artist is in love
