voicemail

it went to voicemail three times
yet you never called me back
you simply ignored each call,
were you simply waiting for me to crack?

you knew what you were doing
from the very beginning
you planned it all to perfection
all that loving, followed by the breaking

of my unassuming heart,
now shattered at your feet
then you laughed and strode away
you were never one to claim defeat

for you knew what you were doing
you knew it from the start
you wined me and dined me, even loved me
all that just to break my heart.

So are you happy now
did you get what you came for?
Just another forgotten heart at your feet
Is that your way of evening out the score?

In Her Eyes (A Nonet)

For the first time in a long, long time
she felt beautiful in her eyes
her lips red from his kisses
arms warm from his embrace
long after he left
the bed still warm
but only
where he
lay
