Toxic

Space

between us stretch

wider

as days pass

fading

like photographs

the moments

blur

I’m smiling

relieved to be

away from

the confusion and pain

the toxic elixir

that took over my life

 

You

Disconnected Love

Here’s to the 3 hours or so
when you were serious about me
the world’s shortest, long-term relationship

the absolute fear in your eyes
and the fierce fearlessness in mine
has made me realiese
this is madness, on my part,
the readiness to jump
from the highest peak
into the depths below
in one fell swoop
all for the hope
of seeing you
3 hours or so of you
and the long silences that
often accompany
your attempts
at being serious about me
I am willing to risk it all
throwing caution and myself to the wind
notwithstanding
your unreadiness
to receive my love
I am willing to give it anyway

and there lies our disconnect
and yet
our connect
and
our disconnected, connected, Love

Playing my part

Perhaps there is no river

For me to drown in

As there was for Ophelia

Rejection hurts

Be you a character of the Bard’s imagination

Or as real as I

Living as you may have done

Centuries before me

Or today, in this time….

 

I am, forever, playing the tragic lover

In an endless theatrical production

That is my life
