Is that a mountain you’re on?
A speedbreaker you waved to me from?
You get your soul in bites
I’m lucky if I’m in your sights
But when we’re locked in gaze
A single moment pays for lost days
Mountain climber, speedbreaker voyager
The stars behind closed eyelids are yours forever.
A rose stained in blood
A note splashed in wine
Painful and beautiful
These torn loves of mine
My passion is messy
So my poetry is bold
But in the end, a tattered self
Is all that I hold
I have thrown away your memories
I have erased your name
From my poetry, my notebooks,
My life is now almost the same
Now my hands reach for strangers
Shake firm, my touch free of residue
Just the merest hint of a tremor
That no one would know was you
It turns out I can do pretty poetry, as long as it’s in small doses. Sudeep Pagedar pointed me in the direction of YourQuote and their daily word prompt has been giving me a reason to post a daily micropoem.

Or my Facebook album…
Or my Twitter feed.
Time zoomed by
left behind a smoking trail
and skidmarks only I could see
Nobody cared when I said
I’d been a victim of a drive-by shooting,
Love in the driver’s seat
So I stemmed my bleeding with paper
Turned poetry into paper planes
And sent them flying everywhere I saw the rogues appear
One of these days,
One of them will find its mark
And bring my perpetrators to justice.
