Neptunian by pd lyons




My ugliness raised in both hands
Almost expecting something from you
And if I had a gun I woulda’ made you
And hated myself forever for being so desperate

If only I could believe
Then how easy it would be
Walking away, leaving you alone
In love with my own sense of self
Free at last to wander endlessly the starry nights I have always dreamt of

Instead I let you
Tattoo blue around my mouth
Tell me that I’m privileged



This blog post was inspired by Patricia’s weekly link up In Other Words where you’re given a quote to use as inspiration for a poem, photograph, or wherever the quote may take you. Interested? Visit Patricia at her blog

    I am rather rubbish when it comes to saying nice things about poetry other than, I really like this. But I really like it. The last three lines send shivers down my spine.
