This is a resolution

I do not want to be someone I am not.
I just want to be someone I have forgot.
I have forgotten myself.
I have left my heart on a high shelf.
Struggling to reach up,
Frustrated by everything I’ve fucked up.
I want to change,
Make a fair exchange:
Craziness for
How I was before.
This is a resolution
Of which I know now other solution.



In firing range

A shirt that smells like you

Wrapped tight around someone new.

A smile saved for me

Turned on someone you don’t need.

I moved on from abuse and fear

While you gave it to those near.

You have no regrets

No reason to place bets.

You broke my heart this year

And yet your conscience is clear.

I hope you change,

Saving those in firing range,

But I have certainty

She will be hurt just like me.

Married souls

An old married couple,

Just falling in love.

After being together for years,

They are going on their first date.

They are in love

After one week.

They are happier

After every hour.

Nothing is more potent.

Nothing is more real.

They’re married by mind,


And being,

But not in practice…

A haiku about you

My inspiration.

My best friend and my soul mate.

The love of my life.


*I go through phases in poetry. I’m sure it isn’t hard to guess what phase I’m in now.*
