Poetry: Waterville by K.G. Munro

Waterville

Watershed moments come and go
Sometimes she wonders, if she’s losing hope
Her family are gone, and no one's holding on
A glass, and a lighter, are her home.


The aftermath of a childhood star, one that peaked so young
But, was burned when she wasn’t old enough–
–to understand how nasty power can be, the people around her were corrupt
No one to protect her from reality, now she sits burnt-out in an alley
A used to be, all of her friends sold themselves further out, and closer into obscurity
They are addicts too, but plastic smiles make ugly hearts appear to be pretty.


Her eyeliner smudged; a face hauntingly youthful yet lifeless
She doesn’t have a home, a dream, or a purpose
All of it was sucked out of her the moment she said no and not yes
She kept her soul but it got badly damaged
Drugs chase the nightmares away, just a little more pep, some more lidocaine
One day, the world will melt, her pain will whither
She’s a child again, not a prop to be used and admired.

Poem: Chaos of My Heart by K.G. Munro

Message In A Bottle, Post Office, Bottle

Chaos of My Heart

A fiery light of chaos exists in my heart,
each red and orange resembling a tequila sunrise,
as warm as the lips of one lover on another,
like the constellations, I will burn forever.

Never slowing down now, do you understand?
These scars on my body, the marks of adventures from my past,
My soul craves to go further, to carve myself into the golden sand of tomorrow.

People look at me as if I am different, I've come to accept this,
Why be anything less than a legend,
Stories never fade, books are leathery portals of eternity,
Where you can do or be anything. 

So, let me be creative, passionate and perhaps crazy,
Like an azure tide that never touches a beach
Wait until I return from the sea before you love me.
