alone (2 ways)- haiku

as a phantom limb

I can only imagine

the warmth of your love

finally alone

dancing beneath the moonlight

she is free, to be

a living death

her existence is a living death

she questions each and every breath

 

is it,

is she

even worthwhile?

should she dig her own hole in the ground?

6 feet is the going rate

 

or maybe

at least

for just a little while

she should think about sticking around

and do her dance with fate

 

 

her existence is a living death

she questions each and every breath

Failure

his sense of failure

is palpable

seeping from his pores

like booze

the morning after

a hard drunk

it permeates

his being

choking any chance

at happiness

real or imagined

Tune in

Listen closely my friend

Do you hear voices

in the falling rain

and the whispers

on the wind?

Tune in with your soul

find some comfort there

in their sweet refrain

before the nothingness

eats you whole

Corrosive

somewhere along the way I took a wrong turn

but then again

any turn I took would’ve been wrong

thoughts of you prove corrosive

eating away, eroding cerebral tissue

acid leaks from my eyes

burning, blurring vision

but then again

the rain doesn’t help either

so much love given

so much

taken

that my heart has grown anemic

it doesn’t have to be the end of the world

but then again

is it?

some-thing

countless midnights

unsleeping

spent walking quietly 

in the darkness

enjoying the comforting solitude

the night affords

but this night

something

earthbound

some thing prowls

shadows rustle

haunt and growl

nerves jangle

shivers careen down my spine

panicked 

I run 

alone

in the black

imagining a stampede

of horns and teeth

of maggots swarming beneath skin

some thing grabs hold

squeezing

screams

from my unwilling throat

chocking

sobbing

I strain

I break in two

sins run red

mutiply my body into darkness

no flowers

stock-footage-hand-laying-flowers-on-a-grave

bring no flowers 

to my grave

waste no tears

if you couldn’t be bothered

to do either

when I was here

Whole – for Prompt 23: Anais Nin quotes

i-must-be-a-mermaid-anais-nin-quote1

Surrounded by sheeple, yet I feel all alone

I’ll risk Medusa’s wrath, I might be better as stone

˜

I long for a connection, for a love that is real

it may well destroy me but at least I will feel

˜

I’ll gladly drown in the onyx depths of your soul

forsaking oxygen for one taste, one chance to be whole

~Melanie Blackwell
