Bittersweet necessity
Futile screams overpowered
By warm indifferent waves

One Word

                                     
                                       One word
                                 Coming from you
                      Can pierce right through my heart
                      Sending poison through me like a 
                                        Stingray

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.

Can't Call It Back

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

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
tainted
apple difficult to resist
one bite never enough
mourn the dying
planet

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

Growth yielded dying fiend,
Rancor malice abort bastard,
Hallowed.

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 
as curse or calamity,
and rather embrace indigence
than change!

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.

with painted faces,
happy outside, but inside

The Hidden Side of Love

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