Barred Revelations

Brain rewired
The spine of prison rattles
Hearts harden

Hungry dogs
Chomp on the bars and the bones
Of his hope

He is lost
Dreams and fears confirm his tears
Time is gone

Guilty truths
Drizzle down his swollen cheeks
“God, I’m yours. . .

Lift my eyes
For your light is my way to 
Shame my foes. . .

My clothes droop
My body slumped against death
This soul swells. . .

I need her. . .
If only you knew how much
I miss her. . .

I need You
For You have stayed here with me
Patiently. . .”

The sun peeks
His sad eyes take in the warmth
His heart melts

We are free
The sky is open to you
Now Stay Strong

I gaze up to the heavens
to find your lost light…

Just another one

It is hard to miss
A person you never knew
Which is all she was.

Every day I die

Shadows in your eyes
all day long I die anew
my fair torturer.

The inevitable

I didn't die for the lack of air in my lungs!
But with the inevitable fact that--
I am stuck in the labyrinth of suffering.

Pulled the Trigger

Bullet wounds
The criminal shoots down his
First targets

How dare you
Shoot them uncontrollably
CHAOS grows .  .  .

Don’t shoot it!
The victims are running mad
And you pulled

The trigger
I’m terrified of your strength
DROP IT, man ! ! !

Fragment

my aches and pains 
help me reason with myself
earth is finite

small botheration 
to ponder the end of things
a new beginning

Where Has He Gone

Lone brown boy
Tears find his quivering lips
Salt meets tongue

Helpless love
I would search the universe
For your dreams

Tears to rust
Moving till you witness light
As mouth dries

Gush of grief
You occupy space no more
Sagging fence

Aging Agony

I might grow bald...great...(don't tear my confidence apart)
No offense, but I'm old young -
Meaning, old in heart...(in lonely, glad, mad and misunderstood states as of late)

Growing wearier 
As the years pass on by...bye...
Youth is not gone yet

I embrace notions
That being old can be good!
If there's pros, there's cons 

I might lose my mind (my memory in other outlandish words)
But, I don't mind being wise (better than being foolish and dumb)
Might as well rewind (look back at good ol' times...that flutter away from my dementia-inflicted mind, feeling under a rock and fogginess clouds my mind as I unwind for a time...dreading the fact that I was and will be left behind and a long-lost lamb, willing to be found)

Neverending

Days of crying.
I stop.
Flood gates open...

Never Meant For Me

Sometimes seems to me
Most of what was meant to be,
Never meant for me.
