unfinished short poems. These are about the pain and sadness some feel in a relationship.
" Bother "

What would you do,
if you
were losing me?

Would you think
about it,
or notice?

Would it bother
you,or
just me?

If you thought you
were losing
me, would you
really care?

I'm afraid I know the
answer, the
one I cannot
hear.

I cannot take
this, I
will not take it,
anymore.

Is there anything
left, something
worth fighting
for?

Maybe don't
quite,
answer that
just yet.

For now can
we just-
can we just
be?

Just you,
just
me.

" Crimes of Memory "

Your memory of me
is frozen in your
mind,
Like a crime scene
photograph.

Looking for anything
to turn into
a clue,
and dusting endlessly for
fingerprints.

Even when you
knew they were
never,
ever
there.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" What is It "

Oh, my gods!

How can you think it's not plain
to see?
I don't know what it is you want
from me.

It's often too
much.
But more than
not,
it's never
enough.

I just can't find
it,
your happy
medium.
You keep me living
here,
in permanent
martyrdom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" The Pedestal that You Built "

This tall white pedestal,
whereupon I've been placed,
has left me here,
in your stubborn disgrace.
It is a position which,
I've come to hate.

The pedestal moves,
up and up,
while here I stay down,
so low now.
You never saw me,
hit the ground.

These angels wings are,
most certainly,
torn, and always broken.
Forever in repair,
with nary a word
spoken.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" Liar "

What if I told you, that
I was a liar? I'm not all, I
was cracked up to be.

I had to be a liar, to ignite,
stoke, and steal your fire.
I'm a bad seed.

The me you know,
it's not me at all,
it never was.
Sorry, I'm just a bad seed.

Tired, and rotted to
the core,
it's a life I wish to live…
No more.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" Write it on Your Pillow "

I wanted to write you a
letter,

But your heart said we're
over.


So now you're
gone,

I'll have to write a
message,

and send it in a
dream.


I'll write it on your
pillow,

one last time to tell
you,


I love you.

I miss you.

I needed you.

This hurts- so much.


I will write it on your
pillow,

sending you my
love.


I will write it on your
pillow,

and wait to see you
there.
