FAITHLESS JOURNEY by Jeffrey Littrell


a love so true is rare

it left me in despair

our last kiss

still burned with masked desire


the moistness in your eyes

was brought forth from fear and lies

only embers still remained

of raging fire


I’m haunted by your ghost

your presence lingers close

this hurt finds me

no matter where I hide


in the chambers of my heart

since the day we’ve been apart

this sorrow I conceal

will not subside


I go from town to town

to lay my burden down

I try to stay ahead

of stormy weather


perhaps there’ll come a time

when once again your mine

and we’ll walk

the endless avenue together


About digthroughlife

I am a fifty-three year old poet who also writes fiction. I worked twenty-three years for the USPS, though never enthusiastically. I am a member of French Writers Worldwide and have had several poems published in French and Spanish. I hold strong opinions on music, film, and human rights. Some of my influences are Charles Bukowski, Arthur Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sylvia Plath, W.B Yeats, Bob Marley, William Blake, and Hunter S. Thompson. I'm an avid fan of the New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, and Indiana Pacers. I like traveling by car. I enjoy seeing rock and alt-country bands in small venues. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo, but no longer spar due to injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident in 2005. I play acoustic guitar. I love Crown Royal whiskey and California Kush. Women are both the bane of my existence and all that sustains me. I believe strongly in the power of love and heartbreak. View all posts by digthroughlife
