Poems - Heather

Heather, this will not do
This will not do
I cannot live like I have
Like a foot in a shoe

My elegiac words
Have nothing to do
With your black words
Masked by your rhetoric, and so, adieu

I love you
But I have had to kill you
I killed it before its time
In stages like a cancer, ach du

The importance of you
Upon myself, I blame myself
For the breaking of me, and you
But I have lost my impression, of you

You are to me a Greek
An ancient from the pantheon, you,
Beauty like Venus
But powers like Hecate, through and through

There was a time when I thought the highest, of you
The solemn heights of Olympus
Could not stretch as high as my love for you
Oh no, oh no, black shoe

I have been bad to you
With women, I have betrayed you
In the lowest trench, oh blue

An escort, a piece, a boy, the sport
Of lascivious ladies, it’s true
For this I am so sorry, so sorry, to you
I have been desperate

The dark banker in blackest mood
Has taken the money
That I belched, vomited in frivolity
On shit, on drink, on drugs, on you

I confess
I am in ruin, no cash
But drink, an amass of sallow powder
And pills to swallow, in memory of you

I am dead before my time
Misfit, misplaced by God
I had thought this a world meant for me, and you
Alas, not true

Heather, I am through.
