Oh Lilac, your shroud of icy blue
will not hold me in this
despondent battle of owlish wills.
My icepick will shred, shatter
your waxed heart’s polished gleam.
The heady reek of infidelity flashes
on a roller coaster of emotional warfare.
My seeping rage won’t fade or sleep
Nor can you elucidate this stolen base
In this lavender sea of grief.
Oh Lilac, embrace me with your septic aroma
smother me with your bubbly personality.
Don’t let the stench of failure claim
us in this shroud of icy blue.
Face our imperfections head on,
Scream away the blues, reach for
the glittering diamonds in the sky.
Like I reached for you, my precious bud
when everything around me said flee.
I saw that fragile glimmer when you
let your un-waxed heart show
how lovely a Lilac could be.
My icepick will shred, shatter
the last shroud of blue,.
