Pariah

you claim that i’m
a class of my own

not like the other
fair conventional
beauties
you publicly adored

i’m unique
the only one
you romanced quietly
then ignored

Human Frailty

I tried to speak
but thought never mind
Rejection stings less
when you don’t even try

Two is company
and one is a black hole
We do not thrive
alone in the cold

We leave habitats
that do not provide
I’m close to starvation
and I need to survive
