A beauty so hypnotic
Poses danger to your existence,
Unless it captures
The attention of a god.
He was so willing to rescue you
You spoiled girl,
He gave you riches
And lavish love.
He saved your life
But you still wanted more.
You lost him
You lustful lover,
Prove you love him
And maybe he’ll forgive you.
Prove you love him
And maybe you can have him back.
You’ve done all there was to do,
But even if you think the competition is over,
You’ll never win this battle
For the green-eyed monster
Is your mother-in-law.

Alone with her thoughts,
She dreams of a world
High above where
Everything is beautiful.
Darkness cowers in shadows while
Regal angels soar with
Making music while children
Sleep soundlessly nearby…
Home. This is their home. The
Envy she feels can’t be suppressed and
Rears it’s devilish head (awakening hidden demons).
Nothing is safe
In this godforsaken He(aven)ll with
Gnarled angels snarling and reaching out to
Her with knife-like claws
To trace sermons on her
Marble skin, marring it
And crushing her bones to make her
Red rivered veins
Shredded in disarray.
“Come here, darling” sighs an
“My children wait to feast on your
Alone, she stands on
Legs of paper
In the presence of subjective demons
Viciously awaiting her
The sun sets slowly
Beyond the white capped mountain
Never to return
Until the day you come home
And stitch my fresh bleeding wounds.
One mistake that could have been prevented
But not easily fixed.
Stir until the bumps begin to smooth out.
Add a dash or glimmer of hope to taste;
Enough that it can still be crushed
But not enough to overpower.
Let sit until it ferments
Sinking into the crevices in your brain
Leaving you with nothing
But an aftertaste
Of what could have been.
Leading to a downward spiral
Of emotional and physical debt
A black hole
One struggles to crawl out of
But be careful not to misstep,
Lest you slip
And fall back in.
Pants rolled up and pushed up
Struggling to hold their place around my knees
As we walked side by side
With sand seeping through the holes between our toes
And you looked at me with a smile in your eyes
And shook your head at my childish play-
Feeling at home for the first time in years
I ran out into the ocean but it wanted to keep me there-
The salt clinging to my jeans
Made my body heavy in the frigid water
As you watched me, you in the sand still smiling
And I struggling to get back to you;
Until the ocean sent a wave that carried me back to shore
And chased me away from its edge
Leaving nothing but a trace of the sea foam bubbles at my heels
