Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

Living

with one comment

Daily, I battle

The tempest trying to

Blow my spirit into

Submission.

It takes me by

Surprise and sucks the

Wind out of my chilled

Lungs.

Drowning on the land, it’s

Harder to breathe

Sleeping in a bed of

Squalor.

Slowly hands touch,

Lips meet, a run of electricity

Up my spine

Shooting.

Emptiness cannot be

Voided by this

Illusion playing…

Lying.

Lately

leave a comment »

In the past few seconds,

I know that I have not been

Who people expect me to be.

I am in constant transition

Between what is right

And what is gray area.

In this infinitesimal space

Of time and emotion that we

Call living.

Each of us strives

To dance to our own

Drumbeats.

Some of us, however,

Do not know that our drummer

Is dead…and a beat box of monotony awaits.

Machete

Machete

 The blade warbles

Through the air.

Beating out a symphony

Of scarlet and pink.

The cries will not

Stop the arms of man.

The jungles will not

Conceal our bodies.

Our souls will sing

From the earth.

Our heart and cause

Will go on.
