In another phase of loneliness
Pulled closer
By your ignore
You preyed on known weaknesses
Spoke solely of my flaws


I long to hear from you
And everyday before
A deadly distraction
This blackened silence


Looking into your eyes
I felt love
It seemed so genuine
Master deceiver
You, my three
On this day, of three

    I know those feelings. Time for a 20 minute walk in the sun with the Son. Smiles…

    That middle stanza is like a dark schoolyard chant.
    for some reason it makes me think of blackbirds…
    This is very impressive, your style is consistantly good, even in just
    the few poems I have read.
    and I also like the look of your blog. its seems so YOU.
    look at me, I’m all opinionated today.

    One day at a time is the way to distance the shot glass solution to life’s issues as well. Not trying to be too preachy; just speaking from personal experience. Pouring depressants on depression is a lose lose slow suicide. Love the way you express yourself so raw and honest. 🙂
