Me time

Smooth taste

Of crimson wine

Mingles with

Soft music

And time

That is mine

A sure sign

It’s a dream

Not the quiet

Safe haven

I find from

My tired mind

Doubt the world

And doubt me too

But look deep

Into my eyes

See the love

 

Stop this

Pointless worry

All these imagined

Goodbyes

 

Remember

It’s not just you

Who fears

Or cries

 

Tell those voices

Inside your head

To stop spilling

Hateful lies

 

Doubt it all

And doubt me too

Words are words

But my eyes

Don’t lie

End of day

Pretty scenery

Flashes past

The train rushes

Inside

A tired hush

On the long

Commute home

Where thoughts

Instantly rush

Beyond people

And past the view

Look for a clue

Of what to do

To pause this

Tired mind

To press rewind

Wonder if truth

Will ever be kind

Playlists of contemplation

Softly sung notes

Calmly float

Over and around

 

Gently nudge

At the tension

Built up

Slowly over time

 

I sit and listen

With faint hope

This knot

Will budge

 

And in the end

All I’ve done

Will help

Sway

The judge

 

 

Surprising results

She shovelled
And shovelled
Scooped
Piles
Upon piles
Of putrid poop

Went on
Endless miles
Forced smiles
Hands raw
From
unforgiving metal

Awkward
Maneuvers
Carefully around
Fragile petals

Until she stopped
To look
Into her bucket
And all she’d done
Must have won
With such efforts

But all she saw
Were the endless
Piles
Exhausting miles
And bucket
So packed full
Of shit

Can’t resist

Not to write

Is like pushing

Every breath

Suddenly From

Full pink lungs

 

Without words

Horrifying death

Of crowded mind

Fantasies woven

Get tangled up

Begin to unwind

 

And I find

Every thought

Screams at me

To write

 

Despite

So much to do

Before

End of night

 

So I breathe

And I write

And forget death

Even breath

And focus

On the words

 

Learning to swim

Water rushes

Panic rises

Face immersed

 

Instantly hushes

Screams escaping

Yet still the fight

 

Against night

Desperately swim

Toward the light

 

Water embraces

Somehow encases

Until there’s naught

But to give up

 

Only then

The realization

I could breathe

Underwater

 

Even better

It wasn’t water

But simply love
