The Waxy Twinge - Poem by Coen Carter

Like dogs finding rainbows in a dreary grey light
Emotions carved in sickness all across the night
Twenty-three years in a subconscious addled room
High amongst the poet’s plain to share the doom and gloom
Freely felt to lightly whispers: “I’m not afraid”
He sails with his vestal knowledge of what is to be paid
A dream you once believed in turned the right to wrong
Unfailing in its crystal breeze birds sing its sombre song
Perhaps the shattered silence fell violently upon a creek
And the Willow that stood so strong has now become too weak
With sorrows knowledge and a fading past we look to new beginnings
As the waxy twinge in a lovers heart sees the patient dimming
We lay in passion in hopes of trust and find comfort in its purity
As souls lay dormant on bedroom floors in the vastness of vacuity
So when we wake the cracks appear in our painted face façade
The aging whore and morning dew of a man so deeply scared
