Words Of Love - Poem by Susan Robertson

Here I am
Where are you
Sitting beside me on that long dark road to nowhere

I can't see
Are you blind
Lost my infra-red glasses
Now I can't even see body heat

My heart stopped
Were you born with one
A shell with lots to hide and no barrier to provide

I can hear you
You can speak
Poison leaks from my ears as you speak your words of love

What is my name
Do you remember
With your lips on mine I can taste all of the others

Find me in the morgue
Are you a coroner too
Stripping me of my identity and filling my veins of pure hate
