Tight

i am a limpet
in love
 
if i choose you
and
you, foolishly, choose me
i will leap
from the ground
and
wrap my arms
and legs
about you
tightly
tangled
in your hydroponic focus
 
giddy
and scalp bleeding
i promise
to grow a
lethal barnacle
around our love
cutting any
who
try to
crowbar
us
apart

with warmth
and moisture
between us
we grow our own
food
and live
oblivious
 
to
genocide
toxic contamination
and global warming
in our
pearly shell house

you’re well versed in your grievances
you cling close to your blame
you’ve dug deep in remembrances
you spit sparks at my name

you don’t hold with forgiveness
you won’t deal with your pain
you’re all boated with bitterness
enraged by fear and disdain

our shared history denounces me
cause i’ve faced our neglect
past crimes have no hold on me
i’ve grown my own self-respect

i miss the value of loving you
before the truth lost on trial
but now our garden is desolate
life choked by denial

My Heart Won’t Forget About You

You still hold a piece of my heart
Even though we’re oceans apart
I try every day
But my heart won’t forget about you

I know you’re in some lover’s arms
Soul undressed by your gently charms
I know what they say
But my heart won’t forget about you

Some day I’d planned
We’d be hand in hand
You never returned
Left my love here to burn

Give me back the piece of my heart
Cause I want new lovers to start
I’ll try every way
But my heart won’t forget about you
