AN ‘un-love’ poem. day 10 NaPoWriMo

day 10… so, the prompt from the NaPoWriMo site is to write an ‘Un-love’ poem on this tenth day.   hmmm?  Here I am, lil’ Missy Love n’ Light and I’m being invited into writing an ‘un-love’ poem.  eek.  And, I’m gonna let something fall out me and right now I’m thinkin’ it ain’t pretty. LOL


I gonna un-love you today

this unimaginable act brings

food up in my mouth.

The scent of our many ended

yesterdays rolls off my breath,

fills the air around me in a gag,

a hold my breath moment

that makes un-loving you more

right than all the wrong of long ago.

of the vile taste that I can’t seem to

wash away with forgiveness.

the fetid linger of how I keep letting

the corrupt thoughts of kicking your

sorry ass from here to eternity

with some added blood and gore

burps up foul in sudden recognition

that I have yet to forgive myself

for allowing one drunken inch of you

anywhere near me in the ‘I see your

Light’ in the dark gloom of your eyes.

I’m gonna un-love you today

In the gather of self forgiveness

in the gather of self love

In the gather of loving you

freshly tomorrow in a way

that supports the light of you

far away from me.
