My Dying Heart

The tears have long stopped flowing
The endless pain is no longer showing
My feelings remain locked deep inside
Where they are safe and free to hide

You said you cared but no longer show it
You give all your time now to another poet
My days are long and my nights are longer
I'm moving forward but not any stronger

All my thoughts I spilled out before you
You a damsel in distress I came to rescue
There's no denying, my nights of crying
I can't go on anymore, my heart is dying




*** This is pure fiction that my muses came up with while I was at work.. I do admit I did feel all the emotions***

Feeling Used

I've read the writing on the wall
My heart's again about to fall
I should have known it wouldn't last
From all failed loves of days gone past

I gave my all, I gave my best
All of my heart I did invest
I let her in, she got too close
It's for the best, I do suppose

The tears, they fall, down to the floor
Another love has shut the door
Feeling exploited, felling used
Feeling dazed, feeling confused

Sadness, grief, some pain and sorrow
Try to cope with no tomorrow
You were it, the only one for me
Now all those thoughts are history

When all is said, I did no wrong
You did not hear my lover's song

A DEEP AND ICY NEVER

The first week of August
you and I were here
With friends at a party
laughing.. having a beer

You were my Summer
blooming bright as day
Your fragrance in the air
was blowing me away

Thought we had a magic
a special chemistry
Told you that I loved you..
then you just stared at me

I caught you by surprise
a blizzard began to blow 
Looked like frosty Winter
a freezing, bitter snow
I could see it in your eyes
a deep and icy never
An avalanche consumed me
felt frozen out forever

Guess I really missed it
you weren't ready to sing
I won't be bowing a knee
or buying a diamond ring

But what if it were possible
to dig out of this drift I'm in
Could I really convince you
to give me a shot again

Maybe we're not Summer
but can we be Spring
Please don't make me Fall
and do that Winter thing

When..
I caught you by surprise
a blizzard began to blow 
Looked like frosty Winter
a freezing, bitter snow
I could see it in your eyes
a deep and icy never
An avalanche consumed me
felt frozen out forever

Aching Heart

Wildflower and dandelions
sage, thyme, and daffodils 
Garden full of morning glory
It's here I will end this story

Days of wonder and grace
Smiles on that cute face
Sun danced in your hair
Nothing could compare

Starry nights, holding hands
Forever made plans
Sweet kisses all night
The feelings so right

A white knight from afar
Came and dimmed that star
What I thought would last
Has now long passed

I sit staring at this garden
Where my heart has hardened
I sit patiently here, waiting for you
Wanting my dreams to come true
 
My black heart is aching
It's had to much breaking
I can't stay , I can't go
If you find her let me know

The Flight of Tempest Reigned

Upon a glorious night
A burning fire lit upon my unrented spine
Deafened by fleeting sight
I flee the home that never was quite mine

Crushed in garish fight
Within the corridor I dare to flee
Blinded by his might
While all the sad spirits return to me

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

Upon that vaporous eve
Enclosed in bond beyond mortal grief
Lost to the foggy reef
The fog that so lingers in these glistening eyes
That vapor drew me near
Bedazzling more than the moonlit mirror
To where I see him fly
Twas a heart-reaching place I always fear

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

Between the beat of my breast
A heart that beats only for him
He slumbers in the clouds
The clouds that pour my poignant prose
Beyond the darkened seas
The wind does carry the scent of his bequest
Within the folding of the storm I cease to rest

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

To him my sorrows lay 
And fall into the arms of strangers' trembling spine
As light and pain fall gray
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain

Zodiac Zombie

She cries comets of burning ice
rocketing through a wilderness of bleeding rubies
her constellation, Anaconda, the 13th Sign, drinker of soul wine,

Her cheeks permafrosted with white agony
the accumulation of eons without the lips of her Man's love mercy,

When the word WHY becomes an acronym
for What Have You,
When knowledge of loss is your only gain,
When questions and answers no longer serve a frantic heart
rebellion is the necessary blessing of love becoming beast,
When everything sacred seems destin to be violated
and reborn as a beautiful monster
she became, the Zodiac Zombie,
her heart a super nova explosion,
a demoness on the breath of Death's delay
hunting hearts born through her Star House,
asphyxiating the affection of all who incarnate through her system,
feeding on the veins of fresh obsession, of virgin devotion,

Legend has it that she births the great Poets and Rebels
for their passion is unparalleled in pride and sweet sacrafice,
she is the Zodiac Zombie, Queen of the Black Sea, Goddess of love bleeding -

J.A.B.

No Reason To Stay

No Reason to Stay

 I had so much love for you
But you simply walked away
I was like a bug beneath your shoes
My love  for you no reason  to stay

You had lots of money to burn
And women falling at your feet
You were the toast of high society
Your life, your lovers, oh so sweet

I finally went on with my life
Got married and settled down
I had three lovely children 
Products of the love I found

I buried my husband a year ago
All I wanted was to have him with me
He loved me the way I had loved you
His love for me a wonderful sight to see

It was just last week I saw you
It had been so many years
I still thank God every day now
Because your leaving caused only tears

The money you had to burn 
Was no longer yours anymore
And those women at your feet
Are scattered to the wind times four

Your eyes were all puffy and old
You had lost that polished glow
Of the rich and well groomed man
And the smart high step now was slow.

I turned away from you
And simply walked away
You weren’t like a bug beneath my shoes
But there was no reason for me to stay
Connie Moore, 5/18/14

Paradise Leaving Not A Trace

Paradise Leaving Not A Trace


I took the last picture off the wall
 then my broken heart started to bawl
 on the floor lay your broken vows
 fat they lay like bloated cows

The love sworn by your sacred heart
 flipped over like an apple cart
 the corner lay three mismatched shoes
 I sit here , lonely, cryin' da blues

I took that picture and held it tight
 sad memories of our fightin' last night
 you spat upon my deep, deep remorse
 grieved as you beat on that dead horse

I saw dear hope entered my heart today
 I saw a picture that reminded me of you
 the pretty girl had your perfect eyes
 sun shining so like you in her skies

Tell me just one more time how you care
 lie to me even if it is an oath unfair
 whisper gasps of our sex-filled nights
 baby, please forget those recent fights

Lets hang the pictures back on the walls
 lock the doors, not take any damn calls
 undress as we rush into mad, mad embrace
 stay in that paradise leaving not a trace

Robert J. Lindley, 06/21/1976

This was my last poem written to her before my first wife and I finally 
divorced. I had my best friend deliver it. He said she threw it into the 
garbage can and told him to tell me to go jump into a lake. Next morn I 
knocked on the door there, her mother answered. I asked for my poem back 
from the garbage can, she got it and gave it to me! I have it still with dried 
food stains on the last stanza.
I keep it to remind me that too late is a damn terrible place to ever be!!! This 
is the first time I have  ever shared it with anybody since she never even read 
it. 
I hope you may like it , for it shows that young fools
 suffer too. And often rightly so...

Zeugma

You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
You refused to return keys and kisses. 
You left me broken hearted and outside. 
You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
I felt cold tears as I cried and I died. 
Leaving me against my wants and wishes. 
You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
You refused to return my keys and kisses.

A SLave's Cry

Stranded in this place
I cannot recognize
Abandoned and lonely
No one hears my cries
AS i walk through this wasteland
Of wilderness and desolation
I am consumed with anguish
I walk this road with hesitation
On every turn that i come upon
The is more pain than at the last turn
Agony and torment spews from my pores
With every step i take more pain i earn
Until i am enveloped with grief
Buried alive on my feet
Dirt in my eyes,nose,mouth,and lungs
I throw up my flag of defeat
Each painful blow leaves behind a deep gash
That is constantly reopened never able to heal
Infection has now set into my heart
Slashes and scars on my body reveals the detail
Of the despair embedded deep in my soul
That tells a tale of a soul so lost
A soul wandering through this wilderness
A tale of what being born black cost
