Battle

Standard

The battle is real

Should i have a glass of wine

Or

Climb in the closet, shut the door and

Sit in the dark?

Teetering on the edge

Of laughter and screams.

Rocking to and fro.

I must remember why i

Am here.
I love so deep

But do not think i am so

Fragile.

My jaw has met fist amongst other things.

Shadows call even though there be

Light

And friendly faces on the street.

Apathy Creeping at my feet.

Once again I retreat from

The invisible forces.
Battling

Battling

With those formless thought shifters.

“Go away!” I say as my worth is not in

Their ungrateful hands.

I write truth on the wall.

I must remember why i am here.
I close my eyes once more and am

Taken to the red dirt

Where I kneel.

Home feels so far but there

It is in my heart. My heart.

How could I forget. Wallowing

In my fears.

I know why i am here.
I let them

Get in my head. I let them twist my mind.

Deplorable thoughts have no control.

Thoughts cannot condemn my soul.

I know why i am here.

Do i?

Claustrophobic

Standard

We watched the meteor shower
While laying on the hood of your car
Then went
Skinny dipping in the
Old gravel
Pit.
Bacardi
On my lips.
Stars reflecting
On the cool water.
A chill in the air
But we didn’t feel it.

We howled at life and raced each other

With every breath we took.

Jumping fences, we ran with no particular

Destination in mind.

Adrenaline laughter.

Nothing else mattered.

Crescendo.
Young and alive
We didn’t think to spend our nights confined by

Four walls
In a soft bed.

Our hearts claustrophobic.

Our spirits satiated.

Time

Standard

Like a phantom
Time has

Stolen itself away

I always thought i would  return home
Whenever i like
Only now

mom and dad
Are both long gone

Still i step upon familiar streets
Still i walk barefoot
The grass reminds me

unspoken hurts

unspoken love

Laughter echoes in my heart
Cigarette smoke
Clouds my eyes

I see them there
Amongst the fall leaves.
Fallen dreams
So quickly tossed about
By
Children playing tag
With no
Attention
Paid to time.
And i smile.

Seekers

Standard

We are all just seekers of
Love and laughter,
Acceptance
And truth.
Whatever we are after
The words only define
The same feelings inside
One and all.
And the
Earth continues to spin
Oblivious to these desires,
The fires burning in our souls.
And we carry on,
Waking up
Everyday
Determined to define them,
Find them
In different ways.
Nevertheless the desire
For
Love and laughter
Acceptance and truth
Remain.
