NaPoWriMo Day 15: Villain faces an unfortunate situation, and is revealed to be human (but still evil)

Betrayed, NaPoWriMo (2018), Poetry


He ached for red-lettered flesh,

He rocked his babies to his chest,

While she trusted he was who he said to be,

Truth more twisted than she could see,

Was he an evil villain?

No, merely man,

Hungry with undisciplined desire,

Selfishly burning all, unrestrained fire


NaPoWriMo Day 6: Line Breaks

NaPoWriMo (2018), Poetry


You were supposed to be the lock

I the key

But you veered differently

You traded loyalty and promise

For unfamiliar


I tried to forgive but my heart never forgot what you



I do

Wander through the desert stuck at perpetual oasis

Unsure of sight/sound of torture/bliss

I do

Make new promises I can’t keep

Only fulfilling steadfast lack of sleep

I do

Trust that in time

I will find

What I seek

May you find that only always forever that you misplaced unreplicable key


May your lock never un-latch


S/he will stomp your door in, guns blazing and show you a new way

I hope you will never be okay


Cast Your Shadow

Cast your shadow

On me

I’ll be everything

That we wanted to be

I guess love

Really is just

A construct

Of the mind

But I’ll be

fine, fine, fine

Just give it

time, time, time.

Cast your shadow on me

I’ll be everything

That we wanted to be

Cast your shadow on me

I’ll be everything

That we’ll never be
