In this poem, I am giving an example of expressing my thoughts to a special someone whom I would like it to be a “forever”, but, I am not certain he sees it in the same light as I do.

Free Verse Poem Silent Death & Strength
I could call you.
But I chose to let you marinate in
our exchange of words.
This rain, this morning I feel
drowning in pain fed to a drain.
The cadaver smell from bones of us
again I forage
you know, I’m not always crazy
the casualty in us is surrealistic
it’s there, or it’s not.
still, the rotting, the sting of the knife in my heart
Still waiting for pools of red to bleed out.
you have these ways of killing me softly
and don’t know it.
