Life’mares

Cold sweats, he shooked

in and out of death,

silently whispering confession

of dark nightmares

hated

for years later

till death,

pointed a gun

in tears

to his left

lobe

erasing all fears

he let go

to leave

out of

misery…,

To

hunting me

again

he hasn’t left…

breathing the same whispers

at night,

tugging my pillow from

left to right,

hugging sheets

of repeated

whispers

hunted

sleepless

to praying

“My God Please…, take

this

PTSD away from

Me!”

Heavyweights

Storms in

my eyes

heaviness in

my heart

and silence in

my voice

to

collateral damage in

someone else’s

war

against

themselves

as knives

slices

straight

to the

point,

the same

boiling

water

softens the

potato

hardens

the egg

to break

into

shattered

pieces

of tiny

shells

bare and vulnerable

to its

yolk core,

exposed

to

even sugar

looking

like salt

until

no more.

Just a Different Day

Wiping the

eyes

from sleep,

laid down

too long

in lullabies

of nightmares,

tossing

ping-pong

wrongs

that didn’t belong

in the cranium,

displaying

dismantling

messages

in megapixels

resolution,

stepping on

arched feet

tip toeing

around the

hardships

warped by

Solutions

sweeping Tomorrow’s

away…,

Sound the Alarm

in noise!

Wake up, to

moving

with poise

facing Today,

as anyday

staying

WOKE.

Anyday except…Monday’s

Waking up to the alarm clock on Monday’s are tough,

the creator of the weekend break knew the work week was rough.

Only two-days for a weekend is really not long enough.

Working five days a week,

at boring job that is interesting or unique,

trying to survive to save money before you are too old or weak.

It does not matter if you are chasing after career goals,

or working to punch in and out the time clock to meet the payroll.

A three-day weekend should be up for vote,

or at least have an option for discussion that we all can promote.

If getting up on Monday’s is not what you seek,

than you agree

the work week needs a tremendous tweak.

To have a three-day weekend will be more than generous,

to sleep late or become more athletic or adventurous.

Just as long as Monday is not the day to start.

Tuesday will be the best day to set the work week apart.

Plus, working four days a week rather than five is very smart,

more time for anything other than Work to capture your heart.

Write Out

pen

talk

to my heart

leaking out

red ink

to an emptiness

void

sealed up

like Fort Knoxx

pumping rapidly

destroying

all happiness

as if

it’s

my fault…,

constantly

jabbing

round for round

nagging the past

as an emotional hoarder,

a perfect recorder

rewinding

to press play to

AGONY

when it

wanna…,

to sores

healed enough

but,

not enough

to keep

refilling

to

repeated

tragedies

and defeats

in a mind

struggling

to live

life

glee.

Now or Never

Loving the

fire in my

soul

and grace

in my

heart

of an

organic growth

without

pesticides

dieseling

droplets

to destroy

the beauty

bits and

ugly parts

blossoming

up

to

new ways

to love

me

gently.

Sunnyside

to a funnyside

of the

mental,

massaging

the

patience

to adore

all which

ain’t had

before,

MYSELF

out of the

dirt.

A Balled up

bud

buried to

the generic

genetics as

a seed

bursting

to prosper

and flourish

naturally

as Me.

Crossroads

Alone

sitting

under

insecurities

clouds

rain

strikes

lightning

all around

my

way

refused

to moved

sitting

back

anyway

into

my wrestling

mind

reflecting

life

as loving eyes

become

lost

hard times

stay

tough

and

street crimes

accumulates

enough

blood lost

of

humanity

to

witness

more insanity

in families

reloading the

shots

aimed

and ready

to pull

the trigger

in

cruel

intentions

to blast the

wicked

into

retaliation

ways of

Street Justice

for Us…,

Clearly,

mirroring

the same horrific

horror

in

tears flowing

out

drenching

hidden

rupture

hearts

choking on

reality

for

years

or not

to

hid away

in the dark

or not…,

Haven’t

moved from

lightning

why not…,

sitting

back to

Alone

anyway

or gone

anyday.
