I am confused
and angry
and mad at love
for the way it has
abandoned my heart.
Leaving fire for ashes
pushed in swirly psychotic
circles by a still wind.
I am left in a continuous
search for an end I have
no hope of nor desire for
I am worn out from loosing.
From all the deceptive things
I have seen, known.
Love had left me before.
It had held on, long after
I had deserted it for
for illusioned passion.
Then it gave up, and I found
myself wanting.
Wanting it to hold me when the dreams
finally burst into reality.
And with my head on fire,
into a garden of fountains,
of peacocks, and palm trees,
and ancient rites and melodies,
I ran.
But even this couldn't save me.
And so I gave in to love again.
And this time I held my breath under water for long
after I should have, because
it was nothing but another
of my heart's helpless
attempts to beat out loud
and find some sense of
So I am angry at, and
tired of my restlessness.
With a fish tail and dove wings,
this unholy longing
has split me somewhere
between sea and sky.
So I wave my white flag at love,
surrendering my pitiful attempt
at capturing it for my own.
Take this olive branch, and grant me peace.
Let me be settled.
Torn somewhere between elements.
Half in the Sea, half in the sky.
With a head and heart full of fire,
and blood that flows, tied desperately to the earth.

Reviewed by Paul Berube 4/12/2007

Sometimes confusion and anger are all part of the package. There is no one who is in love that isn't confused. I would be thankful that the confusion was real because the love wasn't so. I like your word usage it really enhances the imagery of your poem. Blessings Always, Paul.
