Burnt Out Ashes

Poem By Rachel Henley

The mattress we shared, the vessel of our passion.
Our hearts combined in such a lustful fashion.
You placed your wedding ring on the bedside table.
But with out guilty consciences we were both unable.
When you returned home, the lies rolled off your tounge.
With me, we set alight. You soon became young.
She has me by heart, You have me by your finger.
My baby soothes but I crave the lustful stinger.
She became the heiress of my sexual dreams.
But what was us soon became just me.
You told me that the space in your bed was for me.
But your responsibilty was for another, it was he.
I was forced to return to a girl I did not deserve.
She learnt to love her mudane 9 to 5 world.
Yet here I am trying to re-light burnt out ashes.
Anything precious I hold on to soon smashes.

Something heartfelt and somewhat sincere.
Hold the one you love,
Closer now, and ever so near.

A Cynics View Of Friendships

Friendships are irrelevant,
there is nothing eternal in trivial things.
Friends do what suit's the independant people,
Independant people do not suit as friends.

For You, Like I.

As there is truth in a myth,
a form of reality in a dream,
there is an eternal place for
you, within me.

This Place, My Train

If I do not board this train now,
I am afraid I never will.
This place is beautiful,
this place is all I ever wanted,

Companion Confession

Lover I know your pain, I know that your sad.
How life can be so cruel, how life can be so bad.
I do not know the right things to say,
I struggle to find the right things to do.
