"Fight for what you believe in"


« on: February 18, 2016, 05:58:58 PM »

Once you were beautiful:
even now the remnants of your former grandeur
still peep, indistinctly, from between the crag
of your face where the tricks of time and labour
have etched lines and hardness upon it.

granite now, your face demands a sculptor
to unlock the complexity of you out of the stone,
or perhaps a plumber to unblock your pipes
so clogged with detritus and long forgotten hope

your lips speak, not of kisses,
not of love's embraces,
but a cold and meaningless exchange
of bodily fluids

I understand your hardness:
like you I gave myself to men
who meant nothing to me.
Indifferent as the stars I let them play,
my body, like yours, their living toy

the scars you bear are mostly hidden,
festering with their pus inside your heart
that long ago closed the door on tenderness

is it too late
for your suppurating wounds
to be healed with the poultice of love?

Oh, your smile -
so utterly different from my own!

Kindness is what matters most
After that maybe sincerity
Be true to yourself
A condemnation out of ignorance is always unjust
