Crying over spilled Women

His bleeding heart
Was flustered from that torn parchment
In their leeching chapter

Pushed aside
As if “friendship” was aggression’s bull
Running through crowded cemeteries
Under quartered, sapphire moon

He sipped pitied shots of century-old whiskey
With a dusty glass of pomegranate w(h)ine

“Why isn’t she coming back to me?”
“My heart will make empty declarations until her return!”

As he childishly latches onto recycled yesterdays
Praying for God to give him
White picket gate’s access code

Writing lavish, debt-ridden sonatas,
In whiplashed curiosity,
On why she chose to forget him

Unbeknownst to decrepit author
That he
Could simply
Return the favor

    Wow......glad I didn't miss coming back to see this one! Phrases you use, just blow me away.......the w(h)ine factor just knocked my socks off........you are so clever, and unique in the way you think and process your feelings... What a healthy explosion of words....in almost every poem you are able to vent, cry, laugh, feel, and you take us along for the ride! Thanks for that! Happy Thanksgiving, Drake!

    Those words, oh it's wonderful :) I was drawn in by your title and i was not dissapointed. You are so talented, I love reading your work. The last stanza is my favorite. Simple retaliation. I love it. Love, Juli-Michelle

    As I thought of all the things about this poem I could comment on, they all fell short of the hug I wish I could give you. I wish you could see the look in my eyes reassuring you that for all you feel you've lost... You will one day be so overjoyed that you were denied the access code, so the "One" who will cherish the treasure of you; could have her own serendipitous entrance into your own picket fence. Loves my friend :-)

    Oh my goodness...I'm just waking up and reading this extravagant comment. Holy damn. Sarai, I will say that this wasn't about me (though I used to be this way about 10 yrs ago). Your sheer reassurance in this comment is mindblowing & a deeply kind thing to say. There aren't enough characters in this box to REALLY say thank you...
  1. Date: 11/14/2013 12:01:00 AM
    It's foolish to hang onto could-have-been's and miss out on new opportunities. You've nailed this one well, Drake. Good stuff, my friend. Licia :-)

    Wow! You have written this so well that I can visualize it and am taken in. I agree with someone else who said that last stanza really does say it all, though getting to that realization seems to be the hardest part! Fantastic poem!

    Wow! This time I can't pick a stanza that leaps out more than the others. It is all brilliant. We can try to write the pages of our lives but the characters we choose to have a place of prominence don't always behave as we would like. So we can keep digging up unfulfilled memories from yesterday's cemeteries or choose to move on into tomorrow.

    A crushing blow to one's ego when the one you want doesn't feel the same way. 'Access code to white pickets gate"....awesome line! Cry those tears and move on to someone who will appreciate and return your love. Brilliant write! Hugs

    Yes, for sure. But, of more concern & in most cases, it's those exact egos that will break their spirit & heart. Additionally, they'll take it out on everybody else who didn't deserve it. 'Tis a pity. Thank you so much, Cecilia. :)

    Drake----Yet another excellent write...I think this has happened to most people at least once in their lives...like you indicate in the poem, it's too exhausting to run after someone that does not want you the way you want them! Well done and enjoyed reading your poem today! Julie :-)

    Yes, for sure. You make a good point on the "exhaustion" aspect of it. I think that is the determining factor in a person's happiness and finding that closure when the dust finally settles. Thank you for coming by here, Julie! =)

    Hi Drake; the last stanza says it all. I always say - if someone don't want you, you don't need them either. there will always be someone better. Thanks for sharing and smile... Lucilla

    Great verse Drake. I wish to master free verse in this way. I'm still wet behind the ear. Thanks for giving me such an induction. Friend, JM

    With Free Verse, it's all in the spacing of your lines and how "efficient" your lines are. Meaning, cut out the cluttered, unnecessary words. Keep a tight focus on the ultimate message of the Free Verse. But, how you express that message, it's up to you...thus, "Free". I hope that guidance helps a little? Hopefully? :) Thank you very much on this, Joseph.
