SURPRISE IN A BOX

Brightly colored, cellophane covered boxes 

Hold a “fix” and one less breath of being. 

Their contents are tidy. 

Hidden under a soft silver foil 

They lay fresh and new, virgin. 

An exotic beauty with coy eyes 

And ink black hair plays a siren song, 

Inviting you to hold her glass body to your lips. 

She is amber golden seas, 

And the rich spiced flavor Of unknown lands. 

A timeless pungent aroma 

Grabs subtly at the threads of reality, 

Slowly pulling them apart and reweaving them. 

A sharper image and warmth Emerge through the thick air left behind. 

These are small treats and vices, 

An ounce or breath of self reward, 

In a daze of expectations…

Don’t let them!!!

Don’t let them!!!

Don’t let them tear you down just because you are brown,

Don’t let them make you cry or make you want to die,

Don’t you dare hold your head down for that they would see they had brung you down. 

Keep your head up child.

Don’t let them be the reason why you go home and cut yourself.

For that I would say,

Get out make it your day and love yourself!

Void of Sadism

Void of Sadism

The pain of the Heart
Is the worst for it brings

With it untold amounts of
Uncertain agonies.

There is no relief from
The unanswered longing

For things you cannot know
Your love goes unanswered,

Your pain here and gone
And here again.

Tears of despair,

Of rage,

Of grief.
And see how I am deaf

To your screams.
And you will…
SCREAM

AND SCREAM

AND CRY OUT IN PAIN

NO ONE will answer

Your pleas for release
From this awful agony;

No one can hear you

NO ONE IS LISTENING;

WE are ALL deaf to you.

WE ARE ALL DEAD TO YOU;

And there is nothing
You can do;

Except succumb to the merciless void
