Quo-etry #3

Bittersweet memories taste so much better now that it has been aged properly

Death Regrets

Pinterest

hollowed eyes can still shed tears

promised to me before creation,

I let you run free.

Loved by many—

myself included,

I denied you in the darkest of days.

A man’s promise of love cannot compare to mine.

Kings have fallen

A knights’ valor can be broken

No mortal

can feel the pain of taking you away—

as I do.

Yet,

I am still hated.

Agonizing as it is,

I still await your hand.

No one is ever ready

to leave what has been.

Hush now,

let me fulfill my promise

of helping you

let go.

A warm December

Silent as December snow,

her shadowy landscape

rests at my side.

Chaotic fingers ease themselves,

not to keep her from her dreams.

Watching her nap in sunlight

makes for a warm December.


This, ladies and gentlemen, is Ms. Momo. She crowned herself as my writing cat. Normally, she prefers sleeping in the closet but when I write by the window, she likes to keep me company. When I’m stuck on an idea, we brainstorm together while looking out for snow…our favorite past time.

She is also one of three Beings I answer to… (she just woke up and saw I was writing about her)

On Display

Armed with a grey scale of thought,
my eyes bleed magenta.
I’ve felt the warmth in blue,
burned by the intensity of white,
misled by red,
questioned yellow—
yet I remain
translucent to anticipation
in display for the eyes of the world
