Phony

A wet coin on the mall floor
of sanity's foolish hope

Lies next to others
thrown away by desperate measures
with limited dreams

As they sip on frappucinos;
non-fat coated sin.

Their broken backs
walking with stolen canes
off broke back mountains;
in God we doubt

Another exodus with no occupational hazards,
just dramatizations of puncturing joy on tongue

Torment cry the cries of soliloquy lunacy

Lunar eclipse of the heart;
crater meltdowns into stratospheric limitations

Libation,
poured into impurity perfection

Hollowed certainty,
sharp tongued cryptic verbiage 
not claiming emotion

The crippled, run
their mouth

Silent conundrums
running towards field of dreams,
they never came

Faking it
to make it

Once again

    Some dreams will never come true no matter how many coins we throw in deep waters..But there are daily dreams that others yearn for..yet We are the ones experiencing them..Such as health..a cosy home..a decent job....and simple ordinary things which make living worthwile.Yep some dreams will be only another fake illusion..Other dreams..We have them but am not aware We own them.Your verses make me ponder.Great job!

    It appears on my below comment that I got your name wrong. Ooops, sorry. Enjoyed reading this one again. I checked on my order apparently I should have the book by the15th. If you ever come to BC you can sign it for me. Have a good weekend Drake.... sometimes Jake.

    No worries! =) I knew what you meant. Ok, good! Well, now that you say "BC", British Columbia, I assume, that explains the delay. Customs can be aggressive. lol You too, Richard!
