Poetry and Art by J. Mazzaroth
I just wanted to hold you, Why did you turn away? I know you loved my voice, Couldn’t control you this way. I don’t wish to haunt you, But I can’t let you slip. Here in the ocean shallows, I’m losing my grip. Baby, don’t let go, I can rinse away the pain. My heart will suffer so, I must wash you down the drain.
I will be reading this poem live at Inkwood Books on May 19th between 7PM and 9PM during an open mic. Feel free to join me there.
