I'm dying, without you
you were mine, I let you slide, I let you die, I let live I let you slide,
and now away you go, in another's arms again,
and now I'm jealous again, filled with regret,

shoots of green spring my frosted lungs, growing moss, my mouth grows cobwebs,
my fingers itch in words grown achingly,

I hate you for not hating me,
it just makes me love you more,
a love pointless, I am pointless
a sharpened spear thrown at sand,
scattered shot sewn in an hour-glass, inevitable, fatalism,

my heart is an empty engine, my arms dying pistons,
if only, if only, I knew how to feel nice,

I wish I could ignore my regretful hindsight, and just, look, straight
but, I'm a tunnel-visioned lover,
admirable, amiable, if only I could just acquiesce,
relinquish, give, surrender, but I loved you once too much,
{t.r}

Is this going along with your last poem?

It's good :) You seem to use reoccurring images in your poems..

I'm glad you caught that though, ;D
I did that on purpose. All of my poetry is related, although I like to go from one to the next, sometimes I can't.
