Confess,
I guess;
It's best
I rest.
To confess my love, it's best, I guess,
In hopes your arms are there when I rest.

The tombstone conundrum

Bone born
stone thorn
life lorn
love shorn.
Lovelorn, life shorn man child sits and scorns
thoughts of bones born beneath stone grey thorns.

Tyrant

The silent pilot hears grown men cry.
The violent tyrant laughs as they die.
