2016 Reflections

I stepped in shit
and the more I tried to wipe it off
the more I smeared it
month to month
day after day
carrying a load of bricks
on a faulty back
facing the same demons
from years past
incessantly banging my head
on a glass table
hoping it’ll break
or crack my skull
and when that failed
I ate my way into a
sugary coma
pleasantly inebriated, eventually numb
only to awake
fat with guilt and
the realization that
shit stinks.

The excessive rain
on a summer night
manifests to excessive rain
on a summer morning

Random thoughts
about everything
and nothing at all
linger and keep me awake

Restlessness at best
sleepless nights bring
tears to my eyes

My Crimson Heart

My heart bleeds crimson.
It’s drifting, angry, hurt.
Hot like fire
but, you don’t let go.
Scorched hands and melted flesh,
bone deterioration, reduced to ash.
Your spirit holds on;
no rupture or bleeding out.
Still, my heart beats...
for you.

Peacock Feathers and Honey

Doused in honey
and caught in a tsunami of peacock feathers
we’re forever connected
a bond that predates most
of my relationships
and once in awhile
when I mistakenly travel back in time
and relive dark, dirty secrets
you help me find my way back
and we unearth meaning and purpose
and the novelty of it all
and it’s those moments that I cherish
they’re as fundamental to me as
preserving humanity
a sweetness akin to honey
not dark, but bright
reminiscent of peacock feathers.
