In Truth, He Lies, She Cries

In Truth, He Lies, She Cries "Kevin" Drug buy, for one it went good. Drug buy, for one it went bad. You see Kevin, wore high heeled sneakers. You see Kevin, was his junkies' keeper. But one day; the junkie didn't have it, so Kevin didn't give it, but the junkie had to have it, but Kevin didn't get it. So when his beeper beeped beeped, the Junkie popped popped. And when his beeper beeped beeped. his heart beat beat, "Stopped." ______________________________________________________________ “Kevin’s Funeral” In Truth, He Lies Preacher screams, "He's goin’ to heaven",, Kendra cries, "Wake up Kevin",, Momma sighs, "Baby, don't cry",, Grandma weeps, "Kevin's asleep",, Grandpa states, "Resting his eyes",, But when Momma screams, "wake up Kevin",, Grandpa weeps, and then we all cry, But to me, It don't matter none. Whether Kevin's in Hell, for what he's done. But the truth is, Kevin lies. In that casket, before my eyes, And the coffin keeps, such still remains. But will the coffin keep, what still remains? ______________________________________________________________ Kendra’s Cries (Kevin’s Baby Sister) Is Kevin destined, To rest in sleep? Or Kevin alive, When Kendra weeps? Drive down Main st. At the stop light, Stop! Then go right. "Right?" Right! Onto Grief St. "Onto where?" Onto Grief St. Drive down Grief St. At the stop sign. Stop! Then stare right. "Right?" Right! Into Kendra, "Into where?" Into Kendra. Her Kneeees, Grounded on the concrete. Her eyeees, Focused on the concrete. Her tearrrs, Falling on that chalk line. Her hearrrt, Broken by his outline, Kevin! Butttt, Put the pedal to the medal, Try to say "See ya", Go from zero to sixty; But I'll still see ya. Cuz I'm always there, When Kendra cries. Cuzzzz, Some walls got ears, But mine's got eyes… ___________________________________ Kendra’s Eyes On the Wall {Limerick} Eye once had a brother named Kevin, Who got shot and went up to heaven, He left home one day And got blown away. So Eye don't see him no more. NoelsArt Comments: Above is a poem about Kevin, a drug dealer. Added this week a poem about Kevin’s sister, Kendra. FEEDBACK WELCOME
