Neptunian by pd lyons


Pdlyons's Explorations


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

    We preferred the first poem for its newness and brutal frankness. e/s
