Temptation in the face of practicality,
Shackled by conservative morality,
And the reality of significant others;
The dead end want of would be lovers,
Will how long stay under covers,
Of normalcy and friendship? Continue reading Misplaced Missive #180 -Dead End Want
Taking lies at face value.
How you don’t dare to delve deeper,
Into what is manifestly untrue,
Into prayers offered up to you,
Betrays the facade you fake,
A shallow reminder in every
Flippant remark you make.
I remain unsurprised,

But there’s nothing to move back to. Continue reading Misplaced Missive #111 – Broken
God, I miss you.
I miss you. God.
You’ve hurt me in

I think I may have imagined
All the ways you hurt me.
It was never real,
