Abandoned

Abandoned short poem

I saw you alright, but I am not noticing you yet

you have come at the wrong moment,

and I cannot be your destiny,

I cannot yield to myself anymore.

And yes the flame has died down

there is nothing more appealing here

than the wrinkles on old skin

or the paint peeling off the roofs

the rails are rusting and windows don’t shut

and this place has not seen a living soul

in millions of years…

so don’t try to come in now

because no one is welcome anymore.

An Abandoned Bride (escaped Groom) ballad

Left in fuchsia, left awful, never happen, smiled and gazed, waited until twilight, never came, , left solo, left naught, left heartbroken, no place to be found. ran, barefoot and red, eyes blurry with pain. left me, escaped passed strangers,
