One Sided MirrorA reflection
of fractured glass
and water stains;
an art form,
but decrepit remains
easy to tear,
easy to bleed
WasteWe've ruined the lakes, the ponds, the streams
and marred our soil with urban dreams -
Eden blighted by machines.
We plot and scheme; we plot and scheme.
We scorch the earth and sear the air;
our poison, seething everywhere,
destroys and leaves our country bare.
We do not care; we do not care.
Humanity has learned too late
our Eden is a fallow state;
and what we've sown will nere abate.
We reap our fate; we reap our fate.
Letter to youI have no answers for you. I know you want me to continue whispering my poetic and sometimes whimsical solutions to life and its issues, but even I get lost in the twists and turns. Songs and poems only get me so far before it all pushes back and even I am silent.. I know it hurts you, but this silence deafens us both. A defining moment when my heart will show the pain yet hide the reasons.
I saw your tears, and I shattered. Like the selfish man I was born to be, I took your pain and shock and fed my own. I only want to be what is best for you.. I am sorry that I usually doubt. I am trying to undo years and years of self-doubt and self-loathing for you, I only ask for time. That's all I can ask for..
WavesI wanted to die quickly,
this time in your arms.
Jumping readily from my breast
to be held gently to your chest,
by waves of mad confusion.
