Game

Filled with torn bits of tissue,
Each piece a memory
Soiled by the eventuality.
Unable to meet my own eyes,
The reflection stares accusingly,
Daring me to reach deep inside
And once more, come to the fore,
Come out and play.

So hard to put the shards
In some semblance of order,
Reach past the walls
Erected slowly, yet in haste.
Sweeping away the waste
I hide the stains
From blood and gore
And swallow pride.

So hurt inside that it would be
Oh so easy to drown
In the salty expressions of
A love gone wrong
And just exist.
Even knowing that
I'd die without it,
That love is missed.

Gleaning

Lying in what little light is cast from her love
I feel more bereft than before.
Yet it holds my spirit from splintering
The shadows begin to encroach once more
And I feel nothing but sadness;
As it is only release
A gleaning caught between the cries
Of unbearable sorrow.

Going Down

Go down to the waters
The waters so deep
Drink from the body
Slake the thirsts that sleep
Feel the pleasure arise
As waves wash over you
Go down to the waters
And the life force they imbue
