One Word

                                     
                                       One word

Can't Call It Back

Never
Means that nothing
Calls back the Furies loosed
By an unguarded, untamed tongue
Once out.

Despair

Despair. I am like a windowless, empty room. Bleak and dark i steal hope and give anguish. Distress i am to you. Lonely desolation. Like a cloak you wear me with great sadness.

Shrinking Violet

Death masks
the intrusive
images of past thoughts
being burned.  The soul's dark night dreams
lynched hearts.

The Ugly Truth

Riches
Rampant beneath
The surface, a body
Dressed in curves, hard edges, and sea
Bounty.

Goodness
That is needed
By the masses, a gift,
Yet used for self gain carelessly 
A rift.

By those
Who pursue greed
Seeking gains and power
Without the checks and balance of
Nature.

We see
The ugly truth
Over the globe, high bill
Of disasters and waste so crude
Oil Spills.

daybreak
welcomes the sun
earthly beauty revealed
celebration in paradise

apple difficult to resist
one bite never enough
mourn the dying

Young Girls Pain

Love
Deceitful, wicked
Weeping, cringing, loathing
Things children shouldn’t feel
Hate
 
Intimacy
Repulsive, severe
Struggling, bleeding, collapsing
My pain continues unheard
Father
 
Hope
Abandoned, faulty
Hiding, listening, praying
Life is my suffering
Justice
 
Purpose
Forbidden, fruitless
Reeling, clutching, grinning
The agony has ended
Redemption

Eyes On Me???

Eyes on me,
People watching,
In my direction?
Can't they look somewhere else?

Feeling uneasy,
Discomfart rises, too.
Afraid to mess up,
Afraid to fail.

Eyes are on me.
I feel pale.
I freeze.

I don't want
The attention.

see poverty

and rather embrace indigence

Who cares?
Whom fares this sea?


See, hear the tongues lashing.
Forces clashing in every mind:

Deceit

The traditional Cinquain.
A poem, I'm sure, everyone can relate to.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Deceit
Is like a knife
Opening up your heart
And causing it to hemorrhage
Always.

Deceit
Can scar your soul
Leaving you defenseless
Against a world full of vicious
Tyrants.

Deceit
Is a sick joke
That is played upon you
And you never see it coming
Ever.

Deceit
Will drive you mad
And make you scream in pain
You will never trust anyone
Again.

lying on the roadway.
Somebody’s heart will be broken

The Hidden Side of Love

                            Love
                    Hopeful, Hurtful
             Exposing, Hiding, Changing 
             Secrets hidden by emotion.
                             Lies
