Closed Eyes

                             We seem
       To walk through life with our eyes closed
                        Oblivious to pain 
                        That stays away 
                              From us

your blushing smiles absorb 
an ache buried within crimson

Schoolyard's Thug

A narcissistic, ignorant rat
He pushes kids into mud puddles
Keeping the weak ones frightened

Young Girls Pain

Deceitful, wicked
Weeping, cringing, loathing
Things children shouldn’t feel
Repulsive, severe
Struggling, bleeding, collapsing
My pain continues unheard
Abandoned, faulty
Hiding, listening, praying
Life is my suffering
Forbidden, fruitless
Reeling, clutching, grinning
The agony has ended

The Informed

What is it like
To know the truth apart
From all the devious scum liars

Distorted, impassioned
Feeling, wildly, burning
Fearful, consumes, hungers pain

This Song -Cinquain,Haiku,Cinquain

( Modern Cinquain/Haiku/Modern Cinquain) This song I hear in the Wind moves me sadly so much As the rain dresses the ground with Dead leaves Now the trees are bared Announcing the birth of white snow And the end of fall Right now There's only this cold Burning my heart so hard But soon I'll hear a brand-new song I know.

It's pain, Intensified

I loved you once,
I love you still.
Always have,
Always will.

You took my heart,
And broke it to pieces.
Now all I have left,
Is pain that never seizes.

Tiptoeing tortuously in killer

The Heart of the Man

The man, Van Gogh, seized passion with his heart.
With ordinary folks he did acquaint. 
Obsessed with failed success he lived apart.
When disappointment raged without constraint,
He left great art behind at death’s depart.

One Prayer

                                                   “One Prayer”
It’s Christmas Eve and I sit here alone wondering if tomorrow really exists
Yesterday is the past and today is the present yet I feel already gone
Gone to a far-off land never see by anyone not even myself
Wondering why God has allowed me to survive this long with no purpose to live

Knocking on heavens door yet no one is there to answer
Banging on the gates before me yet no one has the key
Screaming for God to let me in yet ignored as usual
Crying rivers of acid streams for the sins I can’t erase

The bitter cold stings at my face as I walk towards tomorrow
A day I always pray will never come so my pain will finally end
Why God must you make me suffer here in a world I don’t belong?
Please take me away from this broken world so the suffering will finally cease

I’m not asking for forgiveness for the man I already am
I don’t want your arms around me to comfort me for this time only
I just want a life without demons haunting my every dream
Let one prayer be answered and let my life belong to the star’s above
