A somber scream pushes across the damp grass, reflected in the pale night resembling a child contemplating everything under the moon.
After years form they see that somber scream bounce back across the grass, dried up from the feet of many travelers who do the same.
Our crowns blended with the pavement, our angels watched with patience.
We practiced religion we knew nothing of and clung to it like childhood.
Unaware of the potential for twisted metal to jerk us back to that innocent place
before being sifted through waves, tossed with the thorns, and left to examine our self made crowns.
Out windows I remember
joy stirred, sights from suns
my stars rested at night
Far from their here.
days pivot on eggshells
justify my backslides
with learning curves
and hidden words form
lumps in throat.
Tomorrow may be over the sun
tomorrow has no new debt to pay,
uncertainties rest easy this morning.
Where holes sealed history andFutures might be sliced soon
Between self preservation and
This is where we meet to ask
Questions, and often pray for
Forgiveness for wanting to be as they are, impulses in transit.
Too many happenings lately.
6:00 PM draped fear over my
Blue colored room where words tilt it 360 degrees.
And I think im beginning to buy every bit of them.
So tomorrow I just may go out to buy one too.
Just for self preservation of course.
Waiting for night to
Liberate the mind until
Surrendering liberated the soul.
Bittersweet cup of
Saltwater for dinner moon
Light peeps through this window.
Visions diluted from the struggle of coping with the now and all the questions that come with it. Are these dreams or mere instances of destiny that we would rather be blind to, is finding self an imaginary game we made up to keep the mind occupied?
We sleep then awake to skeletons we try to escape, and this window brings us closer to truth than we wanted to be. Don’t we remember when we were the hope,
Has that faded along with youthful potential?
Only if we stay at this window and let it drown us in our regrets and its memories of such.
