The Other Side of Love

How can this be, this slow kindled hate,

Contemptuous shivers,

Agonized states of feeling trapped by an other who won’t understand,

Of feelings held back,

Petrified, sold below my best price

Crippled by kisses …


Love only brings you so far,

Moving in place, underachieving,

A low burning, late rising star who never goes full circle around earth,

But falls flat on the way

And falls down, crushing human flesh and human bones,

And human staring eyes

Trapped in place by bewilderment or simple cretinism.


And it won’t even burn there, just smokingly lie there,

Press the air from their lungs …


Then it will die there

And have them all dying below.
