You

I haven’t had a chance to write anything new for my blog lately, so I thought I’d share with you one of my older poems.  This one was partially inspired by one of Nick Cave’s songs.

You

heaven and hell wage war
god versus lucifer
fire and ice, blood and water
spill inside my chest—
demons and angels
fight for my soul
while you
sit aside and wait—

my white robes—stained with blood
my wings now torn and black
no longer soar above this world—

my crimson heart beats heavy in my chest
indigo flows through icy veins
my feet cannot touch the ground—

my hand reaches out
not for salvation, but
for you—
