week 498 ~ when the end is reached how are you to know

with 2 comments

when the end is reached how are you to know
that the obstacles are too great to move
ahead when do you finally admit you’ve
played your last card there’s nowhere left to go
how do you pack up heartbreak in a box
set it on a shelf walk into the arms
of disappointment once again alarms
sound but you carefully reset the locks
on the door of who you are so no one
can get past life’s once-breached defense system
no matter what intrigue accompanies them
your days of living dangerously are done
wrap self-pity in its cloak of darkness
walk away drop a match and torch the mess

week 362 ~ down the rabbit hole

with 2 comments

me.361down the rabbit hole
hints of what could be
overshoot their goal

once the future stole
my dreams shamelessly
down the rabbit hole

as sirens cajole
ships crossing the sea
overshoot their goal

disappointment’s toll
sets nobody free
down the rabbit hole

hopeless to console
thoughts spin dizzily
overshoot their goal

erasing the whole
lies crash right past me
overshoot their goal
down the rabbit hole

week 348 ~ it’s aggravating

me.347it’s aggravating
when you choose to care
there’s no debating
it’s aggravating
anticipating
results never there
it’s aggravating
when you choose to care
