Anger is merely
sadness
dressed up
tough.

Poem: Frames

French flea market

He had shipped the art he picked up in
Parisian antique markets
and sent them to my home.
He wanted to know if I liked them.
He liked me to pick frames for the
unloved
paintings.

Poem: This way to Love

guy alone lines wall

I just took it the wrong way
I assumed that / misunderstood the distinction
between unfulfilled love and unrequited love
I internalized it as rejection
that ultimately yet again
I was unloved,
Unlovable.
But it was
Fate,
Destiny
and Life that was to blame. There were too many forces
keeping us apart.

Poem: When he fell to his knees

man crying in water

He cried so I reached my hand to his face
wiped his tears.
He broke down.
Fell to his knees,
looked up at me,
begging and pleading.
My hand raised to my mouth
I tried to fight back the tears.
I couldn’t,
it was over.
There was no us,
there never could be.
It was doomed from the start.
I never stopped loving you
we just weren’t meant to be.
Fate intervened.
It was not part of God’s plan.
So forget me.
Do good on Earth
and maybe, just maybe
we could unite in Heaven.
Maybe I could meet you there…

Poem: The Cracks

mirror colorful

I see through you.
What? Me.
Yes, you.
Impossible, I am your reflection.
I could smash you into pieces.
But you’ll show up elsewhere when you least expect it.
Like in a window reflection.
I’d pop up in someone’s glasses.
In the face of someone you love
or someone you despise.
I’m always there…
