The throws of passion: BITTERNESS!

by

Kate Abbot

Revenge is sweet yet brutally bitter
There is anguish in love
When there is nothing left but to hate
There is a picture of you printed on my mind
The colour is running
And it is becoming faded
But I know that it was once of you
And it once was beautiful
Yet now I know that it runs as you did
Runs in a liquid poison so deep and angry
That it is building to become a tidal wave
That will wash what is left
Far from my mind
And kill what is left of yours

The thought attacks her like a pack of wolves
Ripping at her flesh
Tearing
Stripping it of its value
The hunger
The greed
Overwhelms them
Her insecurities return
Like a wicked sourcerer
Stepping out of the dark night
And Releasing his hounds
To feast on her naked soul


Rises Up

by

Kate Abbot

A naked man
Rises
To the occasion
He raises his glass of champagne
Up
So as to toast the happy couple

When he sits again
His pizzle gets in the way
What are those things made for
Anyway?
The brides curtsy
Simultaneously
Thanking him for his patronage

The brides took off in their '54 Studebaker
The happy honeymooners
Off to conquer the world
They were a pretty sight
Blonde and beautiful
What?
I'm not!
Well, wouldn't they be to you?

Naked in the saloon
Backs away
Rising
What a way to spend a honeymoon?
Up
In the South of France


I am here

by

Kate Abbot

I am here now
I am within you
I am in your mind
Your body
Your spirit
Today
Your spirit is your soul
As I am with you now
I will be forever
If you wish to join me
I am eternal
Not my body
Not my mind
But my spirit
Thus carrying you through time
Into forever with me
Else
I shall carry myself along the way
Passing nations
Embodying every world
Finding companions
Who serve that moment in time
As you do now
I choose few
But you are one
Whom I will tell of my plight
I know not where my feet shall tread
My path has been set
And the sky has no limits
Only the moon may show me the way
I am with you now
As I am with forever
I am life
I am love
I am here now

Denied her own self-dignity
On her own
No one else around
To harm what she has found
Or what she has lost
To a thousand loneliness'
Upon a sea of self-pity
Where storms rage on for weeks
And the waters are raised in tumult
And her cries are mute

It's raining again,
but the sky is blue
I'm crying now,
but it's not for you
It's for myself this time
and there's little pain
So ask yourself;
why is there rain?

The many tears
that I have not shed
Are falling now
all has bled
The pain must die
and rest in peace
No need to argue
it's time to release


Nothing Much

by

Kate Abbot

Blank
Void
Nothing
Blank
No where
No one
Blank
Naught
Zero
Blank
Empty
Hollow
Blank
Thoughtless
Feelingless
Emotionless
Blank
Blind
Deaf
Mute
Blank

Speechless
Blank.


XXX;OOO

by

Kate Abbot

she loves me
she loves me not
holding on
to a fraying knot
living a life
of gospel sin
wading out
when the tides come in
whispering nothing
to the sweetest witch
sweeping the leaves
from a deserted beach

fellow phantoms
fading shapes
there's nothing here
but those hellish gates
to welcome us
from our life-long struggle
isn't it queer
this mordillo puzzle
my sisters, they
are bleeding too
but there's so much more
for us to do

when has there ever
been a law against being
and who's point of view
am I meant to be seeing
who's book is the gospel
did we have a meeting?
to decide
on which meal
of sexuality
we're eating


My Realization of Changes

by

Kate Abbot

How can I say goodbye to someone
I never really knew?
Someone who touched me inside
and changed me.
The sadness that I feel is not pain,
but emptiness - intolerable emptiness.
I'm lacking something that I almost grasped
and then - suddenly, without warning,
it slipped away.
After a whille my dreams shatter
and I realize that I was so vunerable.
A distructed yet serene closing to a fathomless thing.


To All

by

Kate Abbot

To all who came before me,
and all who fall behind,
watch out verry carefully,
because llove will make you blind.
Keep safe distance from the start,
and still stay far from the end.
And watch outfor the saying,
"I just want to be your friend".
For not all love is good,
and not all love is bad.
I jus hope you never look back,
on a love that you once had.
