Poems

Real

Show me

something

real..

 

a kindness

an innocence

an essence

a hidden depth;

a forbidden

truth

revealed..

 

please..

 

show me

something

real.

Disentangle

Disentangle

all the torn 

outworn 

pieces

still inside you..

 

bruised emotion

quiet disgrace;

the untruths

 

within..

 

that buried place

where light 

breaks in

 

and love

begins.

Centrifuge

I’ve tumbled through

my centrifuge again..

 

you know the one..

 

that separates

good from bad;

bad from good..

 

if only I could

remember

the code

to unload..

 

the debris..

It’s Alright

Stop

enjoying the pain..

 

feeding

this

shadow..

 

blocking

the light..

                                       

let your

ethereal beauty

shine..

 

it’s all fine

 

it’s alright,

it’s alright.

The Undoing

 

Wake Up

to..

 

the phoney

altruism;

the schisms..

the do’s – the don’ts;

the lying

by omission..

 

the blame – game

shaming

control..

 

the taming

of our screaming

souls.

Why

I don’t know

why..

 

birds migrate

and rivers run

dry..

 

why fate unfolds

like a story

told..

 

of rising high;

falling

low

 

rising high..

 

I don’t know

why.
