Sounds that fail

why send words that never mean anything?

I listen to the echo of the sounds

love” a word spent, such a waste

you shoot it at me, aiming for my head

missed its mark, and shot me through my neck

the passion I am, choked and dark

Heart that beats so cold and hard

love” is the lie that flies

and circles life that swims

death the breath that I held back.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
