Oh, the Polarity!

In Poetry on May 27, 2014 at 1:40 pm

The distance between

Two parties who

Demean

Brethren

Is where wisdom lies

 

As blood splatters

Differ by the wound

The space in the scatter

Reveals cryptic runes

Truth

 

Soothsayers soothing

With no real fruit

For there is no sooth

Only the distance

 

Between

 

Poles

The Break-Up Mask

In Poetry on May 15, 2014 at 1:45 pm

A whimper

Not a bang

A smiling mask

With cracks named shame

A whisper

Not a shout

Is what put this relationship out

And I hate it

And love it all the same
