Between cigarettes There must be some regret I can’t deal with you now You bring loneliness With empty promises And the promise of child It’s getting cold, she said You never were impressed There’s a lesson here somehow Always late for bed It’s the consequence Of figuring you out Always wrong, you plead But itContinue reading
I’ve stood his shoes, I’ve watched him cry I’ve heard him tell A thousand lies With broken hearts his alibis Ghostly spirits, severed ties All with smile And charming eyes The devil claimed Another prize Softly kneeling, While he’s killing Wrapped and bound is so damn thrilling- His trickery too. But watch that snake HeContinue reading “Ophidian”

Demons have many faces But none-so-much as you You left about a thousand traces All wrapped up in blue Broken hearts were common places, You used your tears like glue 56 years paved without graces Your time is nearly through #poeeternal #newpoem
I realize now that it has been a year nearly to the day when I went no contact from you. My heart is still broken. But it’s been breaking since the very first time you hurt me. And each time after. And you know the things you did. I’m still trying to process and healContinue reading “This is raw. One year amongst the remains.”
The ends are the hardest to begin
The ends are the hardest to begin Stuck in a vortex on automatic spin Awaiting the pain to end Searching for answers in all the wrong friends He’ll lie and beg for amends You’ll heed the calling And die from within He’s poison I’ll say it again A deal with him is to dance withContinue reading “The Ends”
His tongue an opinion ship Vessels which harbor Satan himself It carries a plague lip to lip Confessing love & other bullshit Common lies his weapon or wealth Hidden behind charm and wit #amwriting #insomnia #ihateyou #demonsexist #gobacktohell #TwitterIloveYou #poem #poeeternal
There’s not a lot left when there’s
nothing to lose
I’d settle for less but
there’s nothing to choose
The moon and I, clothed in our own light, outcasts from the sun. We share a similar delight, that is of course the night. Alone, yet one.
hurricane irma is headed our way
Ahh but who doth not judge the outer appurtenance which is full of flaw? I too shall like to see beyond the hollow scar. Frail and meek, I seek to find comfort in man which bringeth me none not. Love hath abandoned all but my shadow. Until I am merely dust in the wind. IContinue reading “Love hath abandoned all”

There was was a guy named Mark. Who liked to smell everyone’s farts. He got so high, he floated the sky. And that was his best form of art.
He took a train to the north To tie a loose end And said not to worry She’s a lady friend And so was set forth A river of tears That he would soon Apprehend My freedom is more Important he said Your pain is what I give you instead The poor little lover WasContinue reading “If you remember”
I wrote something new last night. Often my poems have hidden meanings. How do you interpret this poem?
Feeling tall but invisible, loud but misheard, strong but crucified
Unto you all Magnitudes of joy Winners must stand tall Alone sometimes we wait With the wrong key At the right gate Sometimes beneath the brush A silent memory echoes a vain, disordered look a widower, an ache Promise not to wake her In her slumber, Sleep vacant- but not far from reach Gratitude forContinue reading
As his eyes shine so too the Sun and rise and rise they do More substance in those two alone than a thousand in my view I wonder if he notices when Jupiter stares too No sorrows when it’s raining here his skies are always blue As far as I can tell as far asContinue reading

If you are the shade Then I want to be The flower that grows in the dark If you are the shade Then I want to be The maggot that lives on the bark If you are the shade I hope you’ve been paid For all of the sorrows you’ve brought (c) Delia Ross. 2013.Continue reading “Small Tiny Shadow”

The love he had And love he lost And love he’ll never have Set forth the words he scribed himself Upon his epitaph Pardon the intrusion It’s a simple game of illusion You love; you die (c) John Fair and Delia Ross 2010, All Rights Reserved

In the absence of love, flames not allowed My love must come and go like rain Dispersed within your shroud A celestial city of pain Yet not without a backward glance Of the love we never knew Compassion left alone in dance Time and space shall see the matter through © Delia Ross 2013, AllContinue reading “Divided”
To dream a life of pleasure Reside a world of hell Demands partial reason Denies existence well A star so dimly lit Still reached the darkest soul And in her heart he bit Consumed it left a hole © Delia Ross 2013, All Rights Reserved
