Friendship Suicide

Is this magic carpet big enough for two?
You and I, chameleon
Ghosts of faithful wounds haunt under the sun
Kisses of an enemy linger above stars
Their words cross my heart and cross your fingers
Tired of defending you, I retreat
In the face of truth, you told lies
The deed is done but the memory lingers

Is Richard Dawkins going to save you now?
Holiness is overrated but a god is a god
Ignore me at your own risk
I am singularly unignorable
(Put that in your dictionary)
Six million friends couldn’t save you
Even if they wanted to
Nurse the poison as affection
Until it masters your resistance

Were you always so wicked?
A canvas cracks its gorgeous mask
The spy behind with hideous eyes appears
Repulsion knows no boundaries
Swimming in oil kills you
Whispering tales trumps silence
Take a whiff of the hookah, Jasmine
Did I make her bow?
Off fires the first rocket!


*The photo was taken from the Oil & Water photo spread for the August 2010 Vogue Italia, referencing to the Gulf Spill crisis. To see the brilliant photo shoot in its entirety click here.
**Sorry to bombard you with my emo poems. I've just been very depressed lately.

I hope you'll feel better soon. Remember, if life gives you lemons make a lemonade.
Your poem clearly expresses your thoughts and feelings and I like that. Thanks for sharing, it's not that easy to share poetry.

the vogue photos i feel are just poorly executed. none of the clothes can be seen properly, but at least it's artistic and is trying to get a point across...

ash said...

Laura Tenshi said...

Wow, that's incredibly deep, This part really got to me "Were you always so wicked?
A canvas cracks its gorgeous mask
The spy behind with hideous eyes appears"
The image haunts me now.

I actually like depressing poems better than optimistic poems, so I want to read more of these. I hope though, you'll be in a better mood soon.
Cheer up

Cafe Fashionista said...

I don't feel bombarded by your emo poems; in fact, I kind of adore them! You are extremely talented, Jennifer!! :)

Mouthwash said...

That picture is both terrifying and beautiful.

You wrote this poem? Good job! But...I certainly hope you feel better soon.

Benoit Blanchard said...

amazing pic

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

I can see the depth in the poem. It is said that a true poetry is born when one's heart is in pain and this might be a proof. Whatever it is that is depressing you, I wish and pray that you feel better dear. I'm going through a very rough phase myself and it's only my friends and family who are holding me tight. We're there for you too.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

please get out of your depressed funk. i love your poetry, but i don't like that you have to be depressed to write it. :)

Sophia said...

Your poems rock. For some reason I feel that sad poems are the best because they show raw emotion. I love it.

xo, Sophia
