Loud Mouth

Inspired by Machinehead – Darkness Within (Acoustic version) & members of society who refuse to embrace the kiss of silence…

As great intentions
Wither upon invalidated declarations,
Serenity’s crowd holds teary-eyed candles
Making silent wishes
For the venom to be sucked
Out

Loudness’ waxy build-up
Making filthy demands
In delegated hostage stand-off
To be HEARD

Cocked pistols, insignificant
Firing duds against glasshouses
Rubbing “war-torn” palms
Within cemented rubber bands

Forgetting life’s lesson
To shut their raging mouth
If they truly want to be heard

Amnesia’s warning sign to muzzle thyself
For one meaningful second
To ALLOW a merging of disappointed truths
Into their heartbeats

Salvation’s attempt to stifle boiling pressures of Sangre
From coming face to face with reality scythes

They latch onto plastic rosary beads
Fade to Black
Singing Gregorian prayers,
Removing knife from karma’s back

They strum in vain to please the Lord.

We see your true colors
Shining through

We see your true colors
That’s why we can no longer love you

Placing forced expectations 
Against vulnerable humanity
To lay weary heads on curtailed shoulder pads

With foolish attempts to swallow moot points
And pride-coated defibrillators
To jump start a heartbeat, extinct

Forgetting that even self-made pedestals
Have a limited warranty

I see your true colors
Shining through…

    Some poems really lend themselves to the spoken word. This is a powerful perfect slam poetry piece. The words surprise and strike the emotions. I can close my eyes and imagine hearing it.

    That's awesome. I always try to hear how I would read what I write in my head. Though, in this piece, I was much bolder than usual. :) Thanks so much, Monterey!

    I kind of am. She's still a great performer today. She was actually here in Sacramento a few weeks ago. I'm very happy you enjoyed this. That always means so much. Thank you kindly, Richard.

    I love Cindy's word for your poem, "Intense", yes this is quite the tense and intense write my friend! Yes, true colors are shining through, do we all know what they are? Are we true to ourselves? And I really enjoyed the lines, "Forgetting that even self-made pedestals, Have a limited warranty" This is so true when you really think on it! This poem is tremendous, I loved reading this amazing poem this evening! Great Work!!
