Stranger–a word to be left alone
Kept distant and vague,

A face on a television screen
More like a target board
All repressed emotions launched
Without fear of recourse.

Sacred distance between the viewed
And viewer–
If broken they merge into one beast
Tears own heart in half
Devours the therapist.

Anonymous haters hail
Mighty ego boost,
Point and laugh at a stranger,
An inside joke no doubt.

Beware if one normal day
The gap begins to close,
Find a viewer viewing you–
A reluctant baffled muse

We’ve been liberated too much

Freedom never meant divine power
Let god or gods keep that
We’ve always wanted more

By more I mean not ambition
ambition was water to seeds.

Our fathers planted life
we feed upon their fruits

Misshapen roots ignored,
forgotten roots die,
Pretty little fruits thrive
but for how long?

how long?

we drink the blood of the dead
blood always gave life.
but it’ll dry like the rivers
used up and left to waste

because we’re free
to kill the heart of liberty

Do you hear the wind outside?
It knows my heart–
the way it swings like a pendulum
side to side,
eventually breaks a branch
smothers the ground.

swing graphic

Where is here?

Park empty
swings swinging
red bench aching for warmth
have they forgotten the weeds
unattended near hastily placed
stones?

Engines pass
kicking up dust
catching an unaware eye,
house curtains closed,
who among the living lives
by choice–
through existence,
through every thumping beat?

Here the trees
grow ignored,
here the swings sit empty
as Life spent cocooned
unexamined, unsatisfied
alone,
withdrawal from the world.

love graphic

I always thought love was for the weak,
never realized how fearless a lover could be
faced with predictions set panic to hearts
dreams of bullets set pulsing beats,
I’d jump in front of a train
for you,
has it ever occurred how reckless love is,
oil and fire never posed a threat
when that flutter wakes from inside,
never has the thunder sounded so calm,
and never has any tears ripped so much,
my heart dies
with you.

They call it poison–

I call it Divine assault,
the most vexing push–
hear the exterior shell crack,
membrane peel–
better or worse my ego invaded
I burst or wither
dependent on this bitter fire.

The greater good! they scream
and needles pierces heart,
I know! I scream back
I know! I know! I know!
rupture my ears
I suffer repetition,
I endure uncensored doubt…
melt this selfish witch.

goodbye graphic

The rarest gift:
the hardest goodbye,
words matter little,
thoughts untold,
precious moments like this,
never complete,
the strongest heartache,
Is it worth enough?

I fade from the spotlight,
Your presence lingers,
I kiss the empty air,
Will you kiss me back?
