Closet

Duo face intersecting my life, One way in closets, Another way outdoors, Can’t live in either lifestyle, Nothing makes sense, Behind closed doors I see myself in one light, Outdoors in another, Unable to bring them together, No sense in my upbringing, Religion screams in one year, and 1950’s training in another, Can’t move past…

Pushing Mountains

Post heartbreak, tired and broken, Finding everything taken, Empty, lost, abused, excused, Everyone around you unamused. Pushing mountains easier than moving on, Content dulled, ill amusement, Casting net, catching it on, Jagged rocks, jutting like my life under cement. Time moved past, Love lost, Time spent, Seems like such a waste.

SITS UPON A CHEST

Depression sits on the chest, As sinking swamp sucks in the wreckless, Justice served on interloping thoughts, Saddening, deepening, trembling free reality, Paradox in between knotted rows, Knitted into being by Destiny, Twisting us down undefined paths, Twisting our future and darkening our past, Depression sits on the chest.

Abbot Running

Zap, robotic tuning intact, Code manifest running, Processing trillions of facts, Per second, loops entwining, Tap, tap, tap, Little hammers ringing on gold plate, Closing trap door over electric wiring, A bit of duct tape, Power button energizing, A robot running.

MY TWO STARS

You cried and filled my heart, Love exploding, supernova bright, My sons, Each handsome and lively, Unique and filled with personality, I love thier expressions, Each filled with different passions, You’re both a star lighting my heart.

TWISTER

Twisted sky, Bearing down, On, I’m expecting town, Debris flying, Laughing cow soaring, Creamery crumbled, Soured as blue cheese salad, Twisting, faster and faster, Howling wind singing blues, Oh what to do, Straining to hear sirens fade, The maid sure has a task at hand.

KETTLE FOR A TROUBLE

Water bubbles Roiling, bursting sounds, Fresh steam breezing by, Kettle, steaming away my troubles.
