The Erosion of One

The whole consists of pieces
Torn shreds that scatter

Hands drag you behind
Choking promises made

Elusive time dissipates
Clouds transform; mid-air

Fragments consist of space
An invisible nothingness (of one)

Hitting Refresh

I rattle my brain
and need a refresh

Somber somewhere in the morning rain
I feel the fracture of my heart,
files are stowed
and eyes are transported

Truth is told, but the lies
are in the untold

Weapons we use
to overcome the unspeakable hum-drum of life,
marching idle worker bees, we are
looking for the honey pot

Yesterday I dreamt of adventure
in tomorrow’s unknown

Fucking someone in the evening heat
you might think you know what’s on my mind,
with mouths mirroring spiel
copies are made for eternity

I am rattled, I am
in need of my insanity

Dragons

Fire and ice

Melting the world

Conjuring an image

Of you –

Reflecting beauty 

 

Before we die

Capture my heart

Purse strings loosened

My gold

For your love

 

Snap out of it now

We are

The prisoners we caught

Halfway home

Half-away

 

Distance it covered

Wearing a mask

Sense it wandered

From us

To never return

 

Ice and fire

Breathing the flames

Flickering blue

-pain-

Of a lie

 

Snap out of it now

We are

The creators of death

Nowhere -now here-

Frozen beasts

Genres

“Don’t you just hate it when you analyze yourself

And find

You are a walking cliché

 

Just like everyone else

Not so special

After all”

 

He said it with a smug smile

And I wonder

What stereotype –

 

What mindless category

We fall in to

Tonight?

 

“Boldly we too shall

Pass through the same

Valley of dread

 

Throwing stones at our brothers,

Torture ourselves –

With our own minds creation”

 

As I make the claim

His eyebrows lift

And I return his smirk, where it belongs

Greener Grass

Stroll through the gates

Greener grass there

Meeting corners

Across

 

Fleeing winds of change

Glazed eyes closed

Sinful wearisome

Cheating

 

Fractured hearts bleed black

Staggered drunken pose

Hurting feverish

Chilled

 

Compose a letter goodbye

Signed within deceit

Lips sealed

Affixed
