Heartbreaking 💔 #Poem

Strange, it’s literally aching This heart that’s breaking The pressure on my chest Barely lets me catch a breath This thick lump in my throat Won’t go, as eyes overflow It feels worse than death Not knowing what to expect I haven’t given you up yet There’s still a few more tests As I wallowContinue reading “Heartbreaking 💔 #Poem”

Law Enforcement

Let’s cut the red tape and protective tethers Away from the modern-day views that now prove We have digressed from equality and respect Excessive force hides behind bulletproof vests Notwithstanding casualties within their own nests Force sworn to serve and protect the community Our peace officers no longer represent a unity Revolting in desperate anguishContinue reading “Law Enforcement”

Scythe (repost)

                At the twilight Under a magical guise Carrying her enchanted scythe She moved stealthily throughout the night Tracking down the corrupted and served destruction Under the pretense that she was the bearer of the righteous light At morning’s dawn, she laid down her blade, and prayed forContinue reading “Scythe (repost)”

Let’s Play

All she wanted was a friend Somebody that would play To assuage isolated days Yet everybody just ran away Rousing evil living within Now, she plays with her prey Hair drapes a hideous face Victims bashed with heavy lead In the head, but not for dead There’s a night of play ahead Limp bodies towedContinue reading “Let’s Play”

Unforeseen Sacrifices

Ripped apart at the seams Waking up to terrors screams A new day of possibilities Waiting to create realities There is always a paid price In the unforeseen sacrifices Handed out despite our faith Written upon destinies fate Life’s battles and deeper scars Show us the depth and how far We have come in aContinue reading “Unforeseen Sacrifices”

Monkeyface

I can’t staunch these tears that flow Heavy, my head is held to the pillow Staring out, through a sunny window It was you, there from the ground Who always lifted me up when down Now it’s just emptiness with no sound That clickety-clack tap against tiles Rushing down the hall to bring me smilesContinue reading “Monkeyface”

Mustn’t Run Away

Grinding his molars as he cleans the blade Looks into the mirror with rage on his face It was a good day till she tried to get away Unable to run or walk, now she’ll have to stay Watches her face distort as she lies and dreams Remembering how the whiskey made her scream DousedContinue reading “Mustn’t Run Away”

The Waiting

Charged for crimes she didn’t commit She refused to give up her only consent Holding strong to her innate dark magic Denying to use it as her defense was tragic Held captive beneath the earth’s vile floor Evil spilled each day seeping to the core It was a long tortuous penance she paid For theContinue reading “The Waiting”

A New Worth

I have to ask what’s the measure of self-worth Is it dependent on what others really think How can it be a fair gage of what you deserve Only a weak slave to society follows and serves Life lessons never learned nor truthfully taught Commercial adds & trendy thoughts easily bought Into communal expectations withoutContinue reading “A New Worth”

Spring Foward Into Night

I’m not afraid of the dark I get an early morning start Sacrificing my fitful sleep To beat the California heat When all is still tucked in bed Getting their snooze on instead It’s calm and quiet till I walk by With my shepherd at my side Waking up every dog in sight Activating theContinue reading “Spring Foward Into Night”

Time Out

Attempting to get a grip He strikes another match Watches the flame flicker As it burns his fingertips Pondering his possession Before igniting his cigarette Hanging freely from his lip She’s chained in the basement Her muffled cries are heard While he savors a burning sip Of whiskey as her blood drips ~This is aContinue reading “Time Out”

Protests Rage

You had the ability to stifle much of this anger By simply modifying your nonchalant demeanor Express a symptom of human compassion and remorse For ending a life early, in the line of duty, you enforced Words you so carefully choose with an inexpressive face Reflects solely on your disgrace and fuels community rage Break yourContinue reading “Protests Rage”

Daylight Cheated ~ #OctPoWriMo 6 of 31

The loud sound of the tick Never ceases to stop Eyes glued to the moving clock Hearing the tickity-toc The birdie does a trick Someone please make it stop! Each day quickly slips by Time doesn’t seem to care Daylight treated so unfair Little to no time to spare Cheated out of the blue skyContinue reading “Daylight Cheated ~ #OctPoWriMo 6 of 31”

Unto this world a new child is born…

Unto this world a new child is born… Into a culture stricken with madness That is strained by infinite sadness The baby cries out loud when it is torn From its mother’s womb of blackness   Out of its protection and comfort The child shrieks at the sudden rejection Life-line severed, a vital connection Removed,Continue reading “Unto this world a new child is born…”
