Dying Hurts


Aged Darling
Sits at the edge
Of the glass doors,
Exhales a sigh
Traces words
Into the fog
Her breath creates
On the glass.

Outside
Is the tempting air.
Producing fragile lust
That breaks apart
The minute
Passion becomes a chore.

The words fade
Like dying apparitions.

Vanishing
Into a speck
Of white fog.

No larger,
Than the circumference
Of a rose's stem.

The outside air is begging her
Not to go towards the speck.

“Avoid the light! ”
It screams.

As drool,
Absorbs into the carpet,
She closes her eyes
To the fog.

What dies
Are nothing but words.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
