National Poetry Month 2018: Blackout Poetry #29


Blackout Poetry #29

a streak of red
across the body
a smoking gun
   forgive me
glassy eyes

He's dead.

crying over this man
who'd made life
a living hell

I got the job done.

National Poetry Month 2018: Blackout Poetry #28


Blackout Poetry #28

after a time
I had to
rationalize
or go crazy

it tells you why
monsters
once were
my heart

a bad age
not really caring
constantly drinking
you get the idea

I chased them out
all it did was
kill the next years
but I survive

a drinking problem then
this is now
I don't look
with rose-colored glasses

National Poetry Month 2018: Blackout Poetry #26


Blackout Poetry #26

I hate this.

I don't want to be
overly emotional
in need of a box of tissues.

I left my problems
to him.
