Plea...Please.Plea... in Scraps More Like This
A single word,
Often used in emphasis
Askance for something
Although you already know the answers
Often its in a request for mercy;
In this case, you deserve none
I care nothing for the promises of change
--still long delayed
And I can’t say I care much for forgiveness
As I walk away…
Knowing as much as you hurt me
(I let you yet again)
My departure hurts you so much more,
So much deeper
With a pain that lasts far, far longer.
Late shiftPerhaps the day would feel shorter,Late shift in Scraps More Like This
And the time pass more swiftly,
If delight was found
Instead of tedium.
Desk and computer and rain outside,
Winter settling in like an old friend.
All tasks long completed.
Idle doodles and notes on scrap paper--meaningless scribble,
Nothing inspiring to flow from mind, to hand, to pen, to paper,
The monotony of the late night shift alone
Stifling another yawn and watching the clock.

J'avec un chuchotement vous donnerais
Cette bête cramoisie de vol
Mais pour faire ainsi
Je mourrais sûrement
Et vous auriez donné
Sur cette âme
Qui veut vivre pour toujours
