#1

I let you cut me

once too often with your blunt

indifferent knives

 

#2

I let you undo

me as easily as a

newly stitched zipper

i’m Circe again:

singing stinging this man’s soul

into it’s true shape.

the bridges you burnt

the lessons not learnt

the ill will you earned

your lonely returned

unkindness you raised

all caught in a haze

your face starts to fade

you forgot-

the demons

always

need to be

repaid

kick you to the kerb.

kick you again until you

bleed for both of us.

all the worst things are

right there inside you, you are

made of water and oil

#1

I let you cut me

once too often with your blunt

indifferent knives

 

#2

I let you undo

me as easily as a

newly stitched zipper

and did you

think that

I lacked the being?

that

I wouldn’t take

the sharp/en/d

of this

pen,

stab you

right

through

your throat

your lungs

your heart

with it?

eventually

impaling you

as

self righteously

as you have

continually demanded.

so you

raped

the goddess-

tore down her

mighty house

of pillars

with all your

force.

you could not know it

at

the time –

but you helped

her to trap

you

in the broken toothed columns

and walls of

her

old temple.

forever you will feel

beauty belief

bricked built

broken.

lost.

She has her

quiet

revenge.

i watched you stretch

out your hand

and,

as

carelessly

as if it were

a weed,

pluck my heart

from

my chest.

i remember that

 you held it

up to the

sun,

seemingly admiring the

red gleam glisten

 faint

pulsation

until it

finally stopped.

bright shine viscera

dangled from

your fist

like tendrilled

roots,

my soul

clinging

like  mud tied

dirt.

in the

old days

i might have

pegged you out,

staked you

spreadeagled,

left you

for the elements

and the birds-

tight stretched skin

and flesh

eventually turned to

sinewy connections

stripped

clean

clear,

reducing you

and me to

the bony basic

points

we all come

down to.
