Nonet 1/365

Maleficent was just a woman
pissed off as any broad could be,
scorned, uninvited, forgone.
All were there except she.
Can you blame her then?
Can’t we pretend?
Here she comes…!
Dear old
friend

their hearts can’t envision
what you really want
to say, or mean
forgetting
we all
bleed.

but memories they cling
in the darkness bring
a love that’s not right
it cuts, it blights
everything
once good
gone

Fragile – A Nonet

Three in the morning and he can’t sleep
The nightmares keeping him awake
White tiled walls and cold vinyl floors
Visions he can’t yet shake
Though now he’s back home
He’s still alone
Wondering
Dreaming
Home
