crucify ourselves

Christina Strigas

I don’t know how some people meet once and never again

delete love like typos

it is a constant pain to love

the person who loves you back

who is somewhere in the sea.

i almost died and every time

i’m scared, i shatter inside.

certain songs make me cry

like a fucking baby, like the ones

you sent me.i never give up

but you

you never give up on me

i’m not 33, those years came and went

i have some numbness in my hand now

spent the day in the hospital

watching a loved one slowly die

and now going back for more

show the kids how death decides us

show my heart what love is inside of us.

you make it all better when they come

after me,

with lies and jealousies,

with hate and envy

you see me for more than a shade of plum

beauty…

Petals

A masterpiece of poetic words by PJB Baylis

P J Bayliss

Early in July I wrote a poem for one of those ‘closed groups’ on FB and I haven’t been able to remove it from my mind since. It was one of my ‘free’ works you see; un-copyrighted and just one of my offerings to all, so rather than loose it forever to the eternal scroll of a facebook wall, I thought I’d share it with you here.

While writing this particular poem I entered a challenge of sorts with myself in regards to the stanza form. This wasn’t my typical comfy zone of A-B-C-B or anything remotely close to what I’ve written before. Poetry used to just ‘fall out of me‘ with ease, but that’s not quite the case anymore and I wrote this with that in mind. I expected that it wasn’t going to happen spontaneously and I wanted to push through that resistance to prove to myself that…

LOVERS DEATH

image

 

lovers Dancing
A Painfully slow
Death
As reapers hover
Sprinkling Cancerous
Spores
Undoing promises
That do not bode well

Alas
What it has become
Leaves you baffled
Confused
Shooting venomous
Words that sting
Apocalyptic Actions
That wound
Killing
What’s left
of a love bereft
Weakness
Is what he
Begets
Failure
To give you
Respect
Sum it all up
This love
Is dead

image

But
In that moment
The gossamer veil
Lifts
You have sight
Zombie reactions
No longer
Cripple your life

Lightning strikes
A thunderous bolt
You are no longer
Someone’s enough
Realizing
Were never enough
But
What a glorious feeling
When
You don’t give a fuck
Because
Loving yourself
Is more than enough

FINAL CHAPTER

IMG_8585-0

With every
letter
Every
Word
Every
Chapter and
Page
I wonder …,

What happens
When you
Drift away
Two ships Sailing
Miles apart
Become
Shadows that
Share a darkness
But yearn for
A piece of light
A sliver of love

As your heart is
Seeking that sunshine
A moonbeam of lust
That walk on the beach
You talked of
But alas gave up

What happens
In that next chapter
Where suddenly
You have To trust
That opportunity
To go with
your heart
Or Live
An amicable existence
Yet
Breaking further apart

Perchance
The next page
Of your life
You can live
Without remorse
Of what was

But then again
Who knows
How this story
will go
What would
Have happened
Should have
Could have
At this point
Who cares

Because
Alas the final Chapter
Is written
The finale Has arrived
The fissure of us
Is just too wide
We’ve gone
Too far
There is Nothing left
To revive
Tired of
Always walking
On eggshells
Afraid to be
Another edit
Footnoted
Pushed aside
For when you find time
You might realize
Our ending
Can be
Summarized
That
We forgot
How to be friends
To laugh
To talk
To be alive

The End

Angel
