that my lips may part for lava

winds sail slow
arriving with difficulty
to confession

I speak against another
back turned
burned by sun light

I am familiar
with the dark -
with poison
with automatic disappointment

that my lips may
part for lava
but not for pardon

and I sail slow over
raging seas
arriving with difficulty
to confession

where familiar darkness
speaks mostly
about me

"I write because I must". I am a poet of dark imagery. I write what I feel and how I see the world at given moments. I love connecting with other writers and seeing life through their eyes, (in words). If you like what you find here, please check out my chapbook, Some Things Ache In The Dark.

  3. Hi Maggie
    Nice to meet you, and thanks for taking a peek at my blog. This very powerful! It fits on how I feel today with my depression and agoraphobia. Just one of those “Struggle” days…
    I’m enjoying reading your other posts as well. I’m a new fan :-)

    Have a good weekend,
    Author, Cat Lyon :-)

  4. Powerful writing!
