“We Got Something, we both know it, we don’t talk to much about it…”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers do an awesome job, but Melissa Etheridge reminds me of the first time my heart was totally broken. So Here it is, the first poem from the Three Voices prompt.

I was given, “The Pleasures of Piracy”




The pleasures of piracy are few for the boarded

Treasured Memories bleeding out from the broken confidences,

Locks irreparably damaged.

Ruby red passions pilfered and paraded trophies

The struggle to swim slowly subsiding to surrender

in the sucking, sinking swirl of the relation ship abyss.
