Your face is showing

Fear glazes the eyes atop masks
Out-stretched hands, morally bitten
Hordes
hoarding essentials—
some to profit
while others for security
Public services mocked
while trying to keep their composure
Bound to their castles,
what awaits one
can not be seen—
Insanity.
Isolated roads
are no longer a metaphor
What was a friendly smile
now a grin of greed
Words of encouragement
from people who preached saying,
“Things will be all right”,
no longer have meaning
in this day and time

Excuse me,
but your face is showing.

 

 

To who she’s with now

Forgive me
I may have said things.
It’s not how it should be
but I pushed you away.
With nothing,
I’m only drowning
in my reality.
So, I have this to say,

“To the one in her arms
tell her you love her.
When you make a promise,
promise to keep it forever.
I know it’s common sense.
She can get pretty angry
but she’s a big softy.
When she wakes in the mornings,
she’s a fan of kisses and coffee.
Why am I telling you this?
It’s because she deserves better
than my played out lyrics.”

 

Possibilities

Like a siren’s song

echoing in my heart,

I’m lured by passion

with no real direction.

If…

If I were you,

what would you have me do?

Will I stay in bed?

Or will I go out instead?

How do I take my coffee or tea?

Black or bitter? Maybe some sugar and cream?

Am I an “Online Romeo” trying to get laid?

Or am I a “Casual Juliet” trying to get through the day?

How would I handle stress?

What would work best?

When the day is done,

what do I do for fun?

Do I read and then sleep?

Or am I rocking a mic with a couple of drinks?

I’m only asking

because curiousity

is getting the best of me.

So, the moment of truth…

who am I

if I were you?
