Fallen Woman

you know what I am able to do
I take a guess about you
you say “everyone has feelings for you”
don’t clarify that means anything to you

why do people trust you?
I’ve always wondered “what you do”
you put your love in every word
you hate the pain, forgetting your loss

you could be an angel from my dream
you could be salvation from my fears
you want to save the best for last
you never cared about your past

I find something beautifully heartbreaking about the sound of a string quartet playing in a minor key. As the first bow glides across the strings my heart moves in ways unknown to me. I close my eyes and imagine I

Tin Woman

Tin Woman long poem

Of all things sentimental. She came through the door wearing a suit of armor. The door closed behind her with a rattle and tick of swaying arms. With rust around her eyes she longed to be melted down. A drop
