At this point I hope for world’s end,
Given up on mending will’s bend,
Taking solace in thoughts of souls' rent.
I have little left, looking forward.
And much less looking backward.
Resilience stretches thin, inward.
Time for it to all burn.
It’s this world’s turn,
To submit to life’s wheel's churn.
Inspired by the Avatar song of the same name. And a hard week.
Rotations and revolutions
Of causality and expression.
When had it all gone wrong?
That young man full of song
Full of bliss
Such growth while away
Hardened in the fray
Searching for truth
Lost in fog
Groping at cliffs
“Push through the pain!”
They say, seeing his strain
He welcomes the sound
Full of ignorance
All scars and endurance.
We all face setbacks. And it's hard, I know it is. But you must be strong, when you feel weakest.
******* and *****
Triple slammed lips
Love and violence
But in my case
Is what matters.
Desire for blood
The need for moans under moonlight.
Give me a face to punch that isn’t my own
Give me a mind to **** that isn’t my own
The things we men are bred for
Values and society and ****
Nature, right? I'm ******* empty.
Muted colors and sounds
Senses acutely aware of their lacking
It’s that ringing shock of an explosion in your midst.
She burst into my sight
Tinkling laughter and warm smile
Stuck my tongue to the roof of my mouth
Lost control of vocal folds
Like a small boat in stormy seas.
Mind your tongue in the presence of
Blind fools in the throws of love
Fit your feet in shoes to walk through
**** that's deep in wake of the blue
Leave behind the woes and failures
Greave the loss of partner sailors
Bend the stem to feel the sun
Rend the fat from vic'tries won
Fear the broken, maniac, and numb
Clear detritus from teeth and gum
Dream of times when truth trumps lies
Scream your pain till the world abides
Never forget that you are real
Clever men don’t break love’s seal.
Not super good at structured poems. But I scratch itches.
I believe people
If I have no reason
To distrust them
I do not.
And how can I have
A reason to distrust
I do not know.
I have not spoken with.
I have not understood.
