Lean

 

 

we have friends to nurture our wounds

there are foes who’ll still spare a room

 

wandered we have, our minds afoul

walking the path caution took,

gunned down trust with a .45

thinking in safety we’ll stay alive

but loneliness fished us with a hook

depression becoming that ghoul owl

an omen to a bliss going amiss

because trust was lost in the mix;

we but surely have that friend, or many

who fought death for our cause,

and have we also an enemy

who wants to put death in a box

 

the world is a house

we have walls to lean on.

 

 

 

 

Intent

 

 

Sitting in my room

seeing myself bigger than doom

the grandiose thoughts have set in

I’m lost ‘tween all I know

my desires conflicting with reality,

delusions flow like songs playing

skipped past depression to anger

– knowing what I want is beyond ken

dark lights, transcendence –

I seek to reverse the orders

gods in our place

scourged with the same whip

begging our mercy;

the day of reckoning is coming

them accounting for their deeds.

for now I’ve stopped the tracks

I reserve the last till it’s time –

retribution.
