Silver Scales

Most Recent

Our fish wasted away

Into a sad mound of

Silver scales

Because I forgot to feed them

They now know my hunger.

I starved as well

Simply because

All I consumed was your love

And you didn’t feet me enough.

Because of you

Father Time and I have become quite intimate

Counting away the hours

And it’s strange… but I have this bad feeling

That I will wait for you forever.

Please don’t leave me alone in a world I have wrecked.

Your use of metaphor, here and elsewhere, is absolutely brilliant!
