A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

The Internet!



That black dagger,

blunted by the

bones it has chipped,

slices into my heart.

Punctures all hope,

deflates my lungs

and leaves my soul

in disarray.

Indeed my infidelity

in your cause

has me hung

drawn and quartered.

Yet I have no breath left,

all expended in


in yearning,

in waiting

for you.

torn asunder and rightly so that even his repentant heart brings no complete reconstruction .. visceral, emphatic and emotive from every aspect .. his and hers ... easy flow .. direct simple language but displays the complexities of love, betrayal and pain ... nice one says i!
ps wonderful music...wish i spoke-a-dee language tho ;}
