Whenever the dark curtain of my eyes
fails to serve me right

or whenever the numbness
felt from rubbing my hands
against my lap no longer
ease the tremors

I lose myself
in thought

how much more
must I endure

how many more times
must they
steal the minuscule grit
I had pondered

- the person that will
always be
my breather
I guess I kinda liked the way how you became my breather
Vein terrain
Screech disdain
Remain sustained
Butane pain
Eminent domain

Pacify me
Jim Marchel Aug 2016
Pacify my war-torn soul
With your white-flag lips
And breath of sun.
My body needs peace
And it wants to surrender
To a gentler place
Where touches are tender.

Pacify my warring spirit
With your knock-out fists
And soldier's gun.
My body aches to ache
And pain in my sender
To a beautiful place
Where malice is mender.
There are many kinds of love, but all love is war.

You have me pacified

For now
Lynn Greyling Nov 2014
Sweetly sublime
I mouth the rhyme
of the lullaby
in my heart for you.

I whisper the words
keeping time
while I softly mime.
