week 213 ~ everything’s coming up roses

with 2 comments

everything’s coming up roses
(please) let the sun shine in
a door opens as one closes
everything’s coming up roses
but still Pinocchio’s nose is
growing so didn’t we win
everything’s coming up roses
(please) let the sun shine in

week 174 ~ the truth is always difficult to hear

with 10 comments

the truth is always difficult to hear
it has an annoying propensity
to pop out of hiding post a query
and dive back in its hole to leave us peer-
ing at nothing tangible just a fear
that something’s awry I wait patiently
for you to get that independently
knowing the facts will never disappear
though you haven’t called to apologize
or written a note accepting blame still
you’ll be dodging truth constantly until
there will at some future time I surmise
come a moment you can’t escape and though
you’ll never say somehow I’m sure I’ll know

week 84 ~ if fractures don’t heal

with 43 comments

if fractures don’t heal
they ache when it rains
and lies can’t conceal
forever the real
damage that remains
if fractures don’t heal

truth can not reveal
what no one explains
and lies can’t conceal
how anger can steal
the hope that sustains
if fractures don’t heal
there is no appeal

if silence constrains
and lies can’t conceal
how can we not feel
the chaos that reigns
if fractures don’t heal
and lies can’t conceal
