The Score


Two drowned kings once met on Death’s island,

a boat to share for them to steer for the shores of life or the bliss of heaven,

yet they fought each other on the sands of time to be the sole buccaneer towards life’s vanity,

knowing that neither would triumph, they tore the vessel apart.

Alas left with,

 purgatory for home and hell for company.

starved off their selfish love to a hating cycle,

they begged for a swift end from the bed of eternal torment they created,

but Death..

Death has never been known to be merciful 

He sailed to Life, grim with his task to deport more souls,

with Death, it’s never personal.

The What If


Begruding thoughts invade my mind lately

creeping into the hollow darks of my slowly hardening heart,

I dine with Bogarts and trade kisses with Dementors

nightmares take hold of my daily awakenings

I’m unworthy of the Light
my fluffed pillows remind me of how much she would have loved teddy bears

etched into the tombstone of my memories is what her name would have been.

Khadijah…
I feel so shitty and unclean but

I would trade time with the Dr just to change her diapers

or hear her loving giggles and chuckles of innocence

watching her take those tottering early steps

gurgling her first words

I can picture escorting her to her first day in school

oh the joy of that
tears of her first love and heartbreak in high school

leaving home for college and her university convocation..
Its all so lucid,

but I can’t and never will
I sent her mama to Marie Stopes for abortion

and so she never Was.
