The Forbidden Queen by Anne O'Brien

Book Review

Untitled Grief

I yearn to expel 
this mind-numbing pain
by expressing it in words
but no adjective seems adequate
and I have tried in vain
to find a language so descriptive
by which use I can gain
a measure of relief. 32 more words

Bondage Defeated

I curse the indiscretion of Fate
who has carelessly, without regard for my soul,
moved her cruel hand over the board
and placed me in your whirlwind path
of narcissistic destruction. 41 more words

Cry For My Beloved Country

Today I weep 
for a country raped
A place where exhausted mothers
go home to hungry, weeping children
and more and more fathers
are deprived of the dignity of labour
Hopeless. 66 more words

Rainy Day Junkie (Trigger Warning)

I watch the tears from the clouds
running down my window pane
and I wonder where you are.
Do you have a needle in your arm? 75 more words

Conversation with the Undertaker

Today I want to walk with you
down the fire escape to where the boxes 
and the trash cans look like treasures
and where you have a short conversation with a man
Then I want to clamber back up
and hear you tell me to be careful now,
not to run

I want to spin around at the top of the stairs
and see your eyes light up
when you grab me and lift me 
high - high up to the brass butterfly
and the pipes that sing
I feel you kiss me on my cheek
and lay your hand on my head
You pour yourself some brandy. 36 more words
