Jane 27

Jane, It’s been three years gone bye
Since you last came though my door sorry
And since you left that door as a sexton
Three years since the tables have turned

Jane, once upon a time
I had the internal scars
The ones that marked my ever so distorted heart
But that was when I was a man

Now, all those scars have changed me
And they have fuelled my words of hate
And they have exploded over you
And they found sanctuary in your tears

Now you know what it was like
But only the emotional side of it
My hands that clenched all the hate,
Will soon teach my spite and malice…

    Of the jane poems this is my favourite. It sounds like your coming to terms with what had happened, although the anger is still their. The last quatrain leaves me with grief and hope you'll overcome. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful work. I love the passion, the pain, the chaos. Very emotional writing, what an expression of heartache. (Report) Reply
