Miscellaneous Lover IV:

the wind whispered,

rattle of leaves and gliding sand,

and here i wait,

for the tears to dry,

for the metal of death to glisten through the abyss of my soul,

i never meant,

i never meant to strike you harder than your skin could hold,

the wind whispered,

rattle of lost couples and divorce papers,

and here we stand,

in the room that burnt love with kerosene,

in the space between heaven and hell,

i never meant,

i never meant to slap you with the back of my hand,

the wind whispered,

thoughts of anguish and sin,

“Who the fuck is he? And why the fuck are his clothes here?”

you should have said something,

the silence only beckoned me to hear the sound of him,

the sound of him making love to you,

the sound of pleasure and lust,

of scented sheets and ‘oh, him? he’s at work’,

the wind whispered,

flashes of your affair play a dangerous game with my conscience,

russian roulette with the last bullets of good judgement,

i mismatched anger for reason,

the wind whispered,

of police sirens and emergency rooms,

of needles and fractures,

i never meant,

i never meant to push you of the stairs,

and here i am,

here i am,

paying medical bills,

medical bills,

for a woman,

a woman,

that’s dead.
