Heartless ~ Cheron L'Estrange


I am heartless
I am cold
and unbelieving
I am guarded
I am untrusting

I am as brusque
as I am charming
unshockable
pessimistic
as cool as ice-water
I am heartless

I had one once
a stupid thing
it broke
and there
I left it

Now I am heartless
I am faithless
I am Godless
and alone

I am unafraid
for what is there to fear?
-what else can I lose?

Two Poems ~ Cheron L'Estrange

Bitterness

A heart so drunk and bitter
The greatest hate is love deferred
Broken hope makes the mind sick
indifference the illness



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Death

Even all the rain and all the oceans
Could never quench
the dried up potential
of your still form
Eyes shut as final stage curtains
Such a waste

Selected Poems by Cheron L'Estrange

All the time

I miss you - all the time
You never knew
but for a long time
you were all I had
to smile about

I miss you - all the time
I never told you
but for a long time
the only comfort I accepted
came from you

I miss you - all the time
But.. missing you
doesn’t mean wanting you back




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


You Were

Truth is,
you were God to me
and you condemned me to hell
that is why I became the devil




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Snow-angel

Cold hands, warm heart
For no ice-sculpture

Eyes forever green
but her soul is Winter

She has no heartbeat
but she’s got wings
Snow-angel
