Malignant Heart

Posted in Poetry, Short Poems with tags , , , , , , on February 15, 2019 by dustus

I had a malignant heart
Past beating to decay

Fire filled its pulsing chambers
Purged my coursing veins

Hopelessness and self-contempt
Died among those flames…
And while no phoenix ever rose
Nor any angel’s face did show
I felt self-love regained

Spiritual Crisis

Writing kept me sharp
Tempers my dull mind
But this is not the type of note
That makes me feel alive

Unrequited

She could never say she loves me
Believes our time has passed
Still I’ll reveal what’s in my heart
And get some song and dance
