Locked In Place

Heartfelt rage hits the stage
Stabbing holes in my heart
With realities and finalities
That threaten to tear me apart

Cruel rules define circumstances
Making my love feel in vain
Tearing asunder what should be wonder
That leaves me in nothing but pain

How can I deal with that?
That which leaves no control
Leaving me stuck in a world made rut
As the ticking of time takes its toll

This constant course is too much
Causing separation from desire
Squishing my heart within its clutch
As my blood drips into the fire

Mental Confliction


Peeling away my frail skin
I expose the bones deep within

Showing you a different view
Slightly un-normal & askew

But however it reveals a truth
Granted it’s a little sadly uncouth

For deep inside beneath this skin
We all harbor a monster like it’s kin

It gnaws away at our good will
Doping our morals like a pill

Filling our minds with jaded thought
Twisting the goodness that we sought

Stabbing and turning every conviction
Convincing your conscious it’s a affliction

Making it hard to see what is right
Each moral dilemma becomes a fight

Such are the woes of the human souls
Trying to do good while keeping our goals

A Flower Like No Other

She is a flower
Unlike any other
Beautifully colored
There can’t be another

For while some flowers
Are destroyed by the storm
She stays resilient
Like it’s her norm

Then by the light
She emits such a glow
A surreal luminescence
That makes a heart grow

But it’s by night
When she’s her best
Like a cosmic star
Where your soul can rest

I could go on
Forever and a year
On the multitude of reasons
I hold her so dear

Yet I am afraid
If I say too much
Others will seek her
And long for her touch

So I shan’t speak
Of all that I’ve known
For this is the flower
I’d love to keep as my own

A secret


From dark corridor
A raspy withered call
Beckoning me forward
Into its putrid pall

Yet eagerly I go
Into this bit of black
Fearing not a thing
As I maintain my track

For I have a secret
That may give it pause
As my hair starts to grow
And my fingers turn to claws…

Conflicted


I witness truths
And call them lies
My brain and heart
Won’t compromise
One sees reality
The other dreams
Lost I’ve become
Within their schemes

A Heart’s Reality


To the night sky
I stretch my arms
Launching my heart
Despite any harms
Closing the distance
By feelings alone
It’s surges forward
Like it’s going home

However this action
Is a reality no more
This heart seeks refuge
On now foreign shore
For that which was
In a time long ago
Had suffered a change
A heart heavy blow

My brain screams the logic
To my stupid deaf heart
As it keeps rolling forward
As it did at the start
“You are unwise”
So says the brain
While it breaks down
From all the strain

Yet without a care
Or a look behind
It travels unaware
Of what it’ll find
For nothing is heard
In the pursuit of love
Because it’s all just feeling
…felt from above

A Star

When I’m lost

To a star I look

Then when scared

A star is my nook

As my mind wanders

A star has me on a hook

Looking for my heart

By a star it was took
