Internal Dialogue: Poetry About Love and Loss
A provocative poetry anthology that chronicles the inner most thoughts and perspectives about sex, love, death, life, self-esteem and more…
From the poet Roman O’Rhory comes Internal Dialogue, a candid meditation and conversation about modern day and classical issues like romance, one-night stands, suicide, music, military service, social media, youth and overcoming personal turmoil.
In these poems about life, O’Rhory speaks to the heart and mind in a quest for belonging and meaning. Something at we can all relate to, but maybe are sometimes too afraid to discuss and explore with others.
If you are into raw unabashed poetry writing, Internal Dialogue is a open, powerful testament to the questions and mysteries of being alive.
Take a look below to read the following poems for yourself:
Nineteen Crimes (Poem#1)
“I’ve got a confession in mind if you have the time”,
To which you replied,
“I couldn’t ignore you, even if I tried.
Give me your ear- it won’t cost you a dime.”
So I told you about what I like to do in my past time.
But to my surprise your eyes grew wide,
Even though you tried hard to hide it inside.
And you refused to invite me to bedtime.
I don’t know what I did wrong.
Perhaps, I should have sung a song;
Or dressed myself in nothing but a thong.
Then we could have made love all night long.
But fantasies are often best kept in the realm of pantomimes.
Oh, the trouble that comes from confessing nineteen crimes.
Satan’s Pony (Poem #2)
She comes in riding on a horse, painted in black leather.
Appropriate for a girl of her kind it seems;
To tease every man who crosses her path.
Appealing to the idea of his darkest fantasy.
Never willing to see beyond her clever disguise.
Sacrifice so much they will,
Praying that she will be their bride.
Offering their hearts and wallets with reckless abandon.
Neglect is what they’ll feel when she leaves them for another;
Yearning for something they should’ve known they could never have.
