It’s going to hit you below the belt. 

You’re going to reach for the 
closest stand-in lover you can 
& you’re going to make 
a home in their body 
you’re going to pretend your 
childhood memories are hung 
in his chest 
& you skinned your knee 
tripping over the curve of his arm 

& you have always been here.

I can feel it in my roots;
I gave birth, in a nightmare,
to unlovable things.
They breed in my belly;
tiny birthdays, every day.
I am the undead mother
to every single bit
of black
in this skin prison
my lovers
have choked on.

“What happens when you meet your soul mate at the wrong time? 
What happens when you meet your soul mate but you aren’t theirs?” 

la douleur exquise 
the exquisite pain of loving some unattainable. 

J.R. Rogue’s bestselling debut poetry collection tells the tale of a once in a lifetime love unreturned. 

“My bleeding heart, 
my open vein, 
a feast for the gulls 
of this storm born world. 

& I weep openly, 
for if they read my tears 
they will know I am real.” 

Inspired by the stars, the sea, sirens, mermaids, and seduction, Le Chant Des Sirènes offers a distinctly different voice than Rogue’s previous publications.

Can we, for tonight, 

just be the moon?

Curve into me like that 
grin in the sky.

Press your heart into my back.

Let me forget my own.

Letters To The Moon is a short series of personal, custom poems written for fans of J.R. Rogue’s writing.
