I’ve always been a poet first and everything else just fell into place after. I realize that I rarely post poetry on here. I’ve joined a couple online poetry groups to kind of get into writing and sharing it more. (See, I told you changes were coming for 2013!) So in that spirit I present to you…
He said there’s so many bills I can’t pay,
Can’t hold at bay creditors,
predators stronger than my strongest hold.
To prove my love to you, I’ll take you away
From these tired broken spirits
laying like a china cabinet
After Dumbo’s first stumbling steps.
My mind’s on empty,
Your belly’s on full
Let’s take this half-tank.
leave it far behind.
leave it in the dust.
cuz in God we trust.
Only thing standing in our way is
We can become more than just us,
Two bodies shambling through life’s
shifting and tumbling landscape.
Our fingers clenched,
He said come with me.
Persuasions tickling her eardrums,
She wished she could shed these 10 years,
Becoming the wide-eyed innocent
He’d spotted across campus
She just listened, never speaking.
Days had long past since she could live on his dreams.
Her breasts are growing,
Her tummy is showing.
Too late for all his grandiose schemes.
She let’s him talk, and he does for a while.
When he’s finished, she just shakes her head.
