To the Mistress

Oh my darling,

Come rest your

weeping head

upon my lap 

You've been 

shunned a mistress


and Vicious

They've gone

to slander

My darling girl,

I know that you are

another victim 

of cupid's



I see you 

So twisted

and contorted

By the grief


misery from

your eyes

Darling weep

till tears

have rid your

heavy heart

of all 

leaden weight

 I understand

Malheur du Coeur 

He will call you Love

But he won't ever leave her

Caught in the crossfire

Of another woman.

    p.s. i enjoy reading your latest poetry, gives my imagination a peaceful jump kick.

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
