The Abortion

by

Sarah Bush

crippled silence - deaf and dumb
the broken bones are long past numb
speckled darkness - clouding - clearing
ghostly thoughts - enchanted visions
perpetrate irrational decisions
the deaf ear turns a jaded nose
with lightning temper - fever grows
clicking - clicking - clicking
rising heat with spotted flame
tearing flesh - crimson shame
bloody aftermath there remained
from this moment life was drained


When Am I?

by

Sarah Bush

Here I sit,
There you sit,
You sit there reading what I am sitting
here writing,
Here is now,
There is the future,
But there, here is the past.


I wept.

by

Sarah Bush

I closed my door; I sat and I wept.
For something I didn't do;
my eyes wrung out like an old dishrag
my heart breaking with every tear
sobbing and holding my head,
I wept.

Why I cried was because,
I lied, it really was something I did,
but just couldn't admit.


Love's Roses

by

Sarah Bush

The black brittle pieces of petal
once red and full of poison
bend backward - breaking - snapping
the emotion is dead - like the rose
Thorns more potent in the dying state
tear the last tenderness apart
the seeds fall - dried and cracked
never to redden into life
The aroma once sweet in wafting air
stagnates now
The feeling is gone - like the rose
The thinning skeleton weakens - bending - weeping
death kisses the earth
magnified through morning tears
Leaflets crumple in the scorching sun - screaming - begging
sunlight sneers at the destruction
Darkened symbols of love - hoping - praying
but gone forever
magnified through mourning tears


Spot

by

Sarah Bush

If I had a dog,
I'd have to name him Spot
so that when he soiled my carpets
with his yellow stains and canine smells
I could merely Yell,
"Out damned Spot!"
As if it were a brilliant Shakespearean Play.
