Discover yourself, who you are?
What is your goal, what is the purpose?
Let's display the screen of real life,
Figure out all your worst situations.
Eyes stained with tears,
Heart ful of sorrow,
Filled with anger and pain,
Tales from plafrom A
Chewing gum stuck to my souls
Why walking alone
Past long lost souls
Beginning, middle, end
When We Became One
I stood there dazed, as I could not believe
it all seemed like a dream until the touch of his tender lips
knocked my breath away.
Tired and cold
I stagger through life
Like a thoughtless zombie
The mist cloaked nothing
but it hid a lot
Morning details huddled
from its cold damp touch
There's a dark place I go to finally feel safe The dark place holds nightmares
Screwing my body up as small as can be
I hide, in the pit of someone's arm or deep Imagined , whether I'm alone or not
Beneath the sheets tangled around her hips.
I dreamed that poetry was beer
sharp and clear, biting my tongue
with its chill, the prick of its
fizz and pop. And when
the bitter sweetness of malt and hop
Licking the grimy salt shadows
from his fingerprints
You dart out, faux-hippy
tripping on your on-trend benefactor's budget
Children’s faces stare
Blank and calm
Children’s small hands
Children's thin fingers
Squeeze their triggers
Flying hot metal
Gunfire drowns out the screaming Hatred drowns out the screaming Closed minds drown out the screaming Death drowns out the screaming
Smoke curls and drifts Dust and ash settle Dead eyes stare The dead eyes ask Why?
Children’s small hands Lower Kalashnikovs Rub sweat from their eyes Eyes that can’t cry Eyes that have seen Too much Eyes that have No answers Eyes that see No questions And the dead eyes ask Why?
