Poor plain poet

He will not cross the moor for you

He lives only in the world of

Once upon a time

Sadness

 

 

sadness

 

 

It is the milky sweetness in a china cup

Burning my lips and tongue

The tick tock in the midnight hour

Wasting away the darkness

The crickets on my windowsill

Disturbing my thoughts

 

The giggles in the back row church pew

Distracting

The book I can’t put down

Enticing

The lover I won’t leave

Smothering

The beast in my dreams

Terrifying

The wave that claims the shore

Unrelenting

 

Sadness born deep within my soul

Rising

Climbing

Overpowering

 

My eyes fill with salty pools

My cries fall on deaf ears

My arms embrace the air

Make it stop!
