Queens of the Tarot up your sleeves


How can I write anything more than druthers with you gone … with your salt still here in my veins,  in the stinging my eyes shares … with that feeling I never had when you left … not shaving all weekend but had all of me you wanted … by now lips would be as raw as my heart feels this moment … nearest to bleeding I have felt since I swore I would never let another you in … you came right through the front door and took the keys off the nail where they hung … I think you put them in your pocket … maybe you threw them out the open window … I’ve no idea, I was too busy with those eyes of yours … and how your intelligence drew me in like magnetic North turns the spiritual compass of a sinner towards the great reward … I was present for the second time in my life … grounded … ravenous … yet, somehow you found it amusing … when I spoke your name with passion and desired, to taste everything, to believe in the possibilities … you merely wanted assurances you could have assurances before you took the thorns off the rose canes … How did Leonard put it, “He was just looking for a card so high, he’d never have to deal another … ” and you found it only to dog ear the corner to remind yourself … it became essential I be broken down to baby girl and Eve before you returned my keys to me … assuring me, I was ordinary after all … you taught me too early, there is only one surprise … you carry the Queens of the Tarot up your sleeves …

  1. Beautifully done and I think we have all come across a person as such that our hearts took in only to be disappointed and they not the person of our dream after all that we made up in our minds. The hope, the want, the vulnerability we lay forward only to be crushed. Well done sister.

    1. Thank you dear brother. I am humbled by your words. Sometimes poems come through me for others. I didn’t have an idea where this one came from however, I hope it eases whom ever it was meant for. Your sentiments were right on the nose though, as always in what it must be saying.
