Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


In the puddle of a storm
Where worms crawl and die,
I see a face forlorn
Backed by troubled sky.
Squirming to escape
The impending doom of light, 
I peer back at my fate
And reflection of my plight.
A life that was a lie;
Sold out from the start
Leaving souls that writhe
To twist and pull apart.
Too late for tears to fall
Then splash and mask it all.
