They Say Thing's Come in Three's

They Say Thing's Come in Three's

A Poem by kera moondust

poetry trying not to bash my poor ex's who've had the unfortunance of breaking a poet's heart.


I have a bad habit of writing

                Hatred into my

                                Heart break

Especially when it’s being written

                                Out of bitterness


But I never write about

                Everything I loved

                                And forever will

           About each dent

In my heart


The first

                I am trying desperately not to repeat

                                But he showed me my favorite kind

Of love story


Unfortunately I don't have much to say about him

                Other than how brilliant the mahogany in his eyes

                                Truly was


He’s a killer

                The cold blooded kind

                                But I still would ache for his words

           It’s been almost two years of our silence

But I still miss him terribly


In retrospect

                My Raven isn't perfect

And well of course I obviously am not either

                But I still like the way his smile crinkles deviously

                                And I will forever be mesmerized

           By birds against sunsets

And his love affair with interstellar travel


He’s a travesty

                But I was convinced he held my keys

                                And I know a couple of things


I am a liar

And him, he’s a cheat

                And heaven forbid these sins complement

                                The caramel underneath his feathers

And when I fell in love with birds

                I fell in love with the sky as well


Looking back

                The ocean has always called to me

                                In one way or another

His waves were a caress

                I am aching to forget

                                And forgive


I won’t speak badly of the ocean

                I know that currents are harsh there

                                And storms turn so easily into


It’s not his fault he was born with water

                Coursing through his earth bound body


And I hope he knows

                It’s not my fault

                                I’m the sky

                                And he is the sea

And we will never



Someone once told me

                Things tend to come in threes

I hope the heartbreak that my perfumed lips

                                Have tasted

Follows the
