Absolution

She said…

Baby,

I wanna make you feel all better.

Be absolution for the blame.

 

I said…

I appreciate that,

lover.

But I no longer play the game. 

I won’t give myself that freely now,

or ever be the same. 

I don’t let my guard down,

because you haven’t earned my pain. 

And there is no absolution

for the blame.

Talisman

nano TALISMAN png

 

Some people wear talismans
Bracelets
a necklace
Charms that dangle for the
pious crowd

The talismans I wear
Scars
a reminder
Ransom invisible
to all

Seen only by those I allow
Healers
a lover
An undertaker in
silent prayer

My life is a talisman
Unseen,
a reminder
like a bad tattoo
I allow others to wear
