Forget About Her
I can’t breathe.

I am,
Sometimes,
But it’s not painful
Like it used to be
Back when...

Premium Member HEAVY HEART


Heavy heart hears,
Ink invokes ire;
Dance deeply dear,
Expose empire.
Hurl hurry's horse,
Expose empty;
Ask apt applause,
Voice vanity;
Yield yonder yes.
Hide hopeless husk,
End each express;
Air aligns ask,
Rust reaps refill;
Thrust troubles...

Aspiration



And here
we are
again,
my love,
under
one more
bullock
cart night,
devoid 
of care,
ageless
in joy.

Clingy
as sand
are the
actions
of past.
Forgive,
my love,
forget
as well,
devoid
of care,
ageless
in joy.

For long
had I
raged and
hated
the tide
that took
you far
adrift.
But now,
my love,
I know

In a mirror dimly
The image thou wilt see
Is a trick of the eye,
Which clouds reality.

Such misplaced vanity,

Study the image in the pool.
