Room of Lies

Yesterday is hell sifted away
tomorrow is heaven
a myth...
no bye, no aloha 

complex married 
misunderstood
unable to communicate
hate
a retaliating stranger who never saw first blood
eyes red
puddled with break down
habits grab for stimuli 
the pill, the Beretta for the take down
longing to read, when ability limits him to simply write 
this sophomoric curse 

pain receptors dulled via sleep
yet the light pink demons creep 
reminding blind self
nothing's mitigated
if only he could speak

Brahms whistles from the desk
supplementing a place in life
the creative act 
a hard fought solitude
terrible and tremendous


weeks ago
jaws of life pried his body from a car full of lies
lucky to be alive
today 
he's stuck in a room of no truths 
where enemies pretend to be friends
and blood stains, like cries 
never dry...


Yesterday is hell sifted away
tomorrow is heaven
a myth...
no bye, no aloha

    Love the "car full of lies" metaphor. What a wonderful full speed, full on read. Great words.

    so .. hmm.. not quite angry but befuddled, losing hope. crying out for something which never existed to begin with the 'human concept of truth' very evocative makes one want to hold your face and just clam you by staring into you eyes ... thank s so much for your kind comment!

    Parts of this were clear as a bell and other parts I was not sure what you meant, but wow, I love that repeating part, no bye, no aloha. Very powerful writing as always. You do not believe in an afterlife??
