Stranded

Iím vainly trying to understand
Why your silence is more deafening than your screams
I have no sense of peace. Am I damned?
Or will I wake up from this dream?

I was aiming for the light, yet the tunnel caved in
And now Iím blindly walking through the darkness
Is my blindness a punishment for a sin?
Will I make it out of hell without becoming heartless?

Iím crawling out of this hole, but Iíve got nowhere to go
Iíve been abandoned; I took my life for granted
What has happened to my soul? I donít feel whole
This pain is more than Iíve ever imagined; Iíve been stranded.

Iím vainly trying to understand
Why your ignorance of me hurts me more than your screams
The blood runs cold through my veins; Iím going mad
My only company are my dark thoughts, of which I am their Queen.

I nearly reached the surface, yet I was pulled down
Struggling only strengthened the grip
The air rushed out of me, and I had drowned
Darkness came for me as I slippedÖ

Iím crawling out of this hole, but Iíve got nowhere to go
Iíve been abandoned; I took my life for granted
What has happened to my soul? I donít feel whole
This pain is more than Iíve ever imagined; Iíve been stranded.

I'm trapped
Within the dreams
Of my own
Nightmare's
Where my thoughts
DO nothing but decay
An already battered system
That's trying to keep me

Awake

I can Feel
The sun
Behind the window blinds
I can Smell
The fresh air
When you
Unlock the door
And I
Bow my head
And cry
A little more

Unenlightenment --

Full Imprisoned in Milton's Blind Mind

Each year near half a million children Heaven make of Hell
on dying slow in pain of that ol' nuisance sickle cell.

Lonely Place

Am all attentive who will teach?
Let me know..
Am all submissive who will preach
Let me know..



Tied the knot with this crazy witch called the world who threw me out of my home and let me all alone in the ditch save me Lord..

Deep inside this wedlock nor divorce just remorse in return made my head so full and dull am walking blindly crossing lonely roads..


Sitting next or beside this witch
Body itch and muscle twitch
Lord knows I need a switch..

My eyes shut how can I see?
Road blocks I cannot flee
Got stranded in here for so many weeks
Am totally lost in what I seek..

My magic wand now just a stick
I have not a single trick
Can't penetrate a wall of bricks
So count me out among those gods of Greek..

One can tell my time is due
Am dull enough to need a clue

Set me free, let me out of this lonely place
All the doors are locked
Am trading on an empty space..

Am calling from a lonely place
I might be too late
Screaming in a such a silent place
Help me!

The sun about to rise
I am dying with no grace
All I crave for is digging my own grave..

Sinking

Deep in the shadows of the mind
Where chains of time doth ever bind
There lies a home, a dwelling place
Where darkness reigns, and cold embrace

Bittersweet memories linger there
A beating heart that's filled with despair
A reality that's hard to face
A facade of hope, a mirage of grace

Oh, how he longs to wake from this dream
This endless cycle, this drowning stream
But whispers from within his soul
Keep him bound to this endless hole

He yearns for light, for hope, for peace
But darkness is all that he can see
And so he lingers in this place
A prisoner of his own disgrace

And thus he'll stay forevermore
A captive of his inner war
His home a prison, his mind a grave
No hope, no light, no soul to save

Six Pleonasms in Search of Euphemism

 
Let's be honest
as in political correctness.
Politics lie!
Let's go outside
of this prison...
and save ourselves victims
of an innocent thief.

for him

At the back of his photograph
six digits outnumber his identity
 
he tells me birth was not a word
though life he was given by her
she who raised him with a stick
 
praying mantis
sowing blisters within his soul
carving glassy shards
 
he remembers not
but knows
behind kerosene eyelids
 
I found a hallway
untied each ribbon
sailing through salt
 
he tells me there are no sunsets
these are filled with neighing night mares
stamping feet bearing knuckles
 
a panorama  
sounds
howling  
 
he owns nothing
had to patch up his only pair of pants
sowed it with thread a needle
 
they took his pen and pencil
because truth has no quill
he is an artisan
 
wielder of color word and web
he is Loki the trickster
and the world turns
around him
 
he said when he presses his face
against a tiny window
he can experience an outer layer
 
in segregation smeared cells
he swiped the pores from him
never is a world
traumatic aroma
 
he never expires
because nothing breaks him
there are cosmic chromosomes
neath his fingers

Prisoner In My Mind

Prisoner in my mind...
All In time....
A disaster you will find.

Through deeper depths,
I let you intrude, becoming a
Prisoner in my mind.

For this I truly regret.
What will happen next...
A disaster you will find.

Manipulation, your greatest strength.
Somehow, you made me a,
Prisoner in my mind.

And after all this time,
Letting you deep inside,
A disaster you will find.

You called me worthless.
Believing that, also made me a
Prisoner in my mind.
A disaster you will find.
