I was a cog
held in my place by invisible screws,
there to fix a machine,
not you.

You were a secret
someone forgot to put away.
Our connection
landed reprimands in personnel files.
Changed nothing.

Had you ever seen the sky?
Tasted hope’s promises?
Been hugged?
I hope not.
I can’t forget your eyes.

  1. Heartbreaking, and the words as well as the horrific picture–especially that smoky ending. “I hope not.” –works on many levels.

    This was so sad and frightening.
    Terrifying pic.
    Loved your 55 though.
    You have some deep crazy thoughts Lady.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End
