Lies From Liars

LIES FROM LIARS

spiders and a corncob

Where a lawn used to flourish

now grows a weed forest.

Within the forest a collection of trash,

and empty liquor bottles decorate dead grass.

My fascination lies beyond the weeds,

an old abandoned house beckons to me.

With promises of secrets and dark treasures to be found,

I jog through the jug graveyard, up the stairs I bound.

I glance through one of its broken eyes;

I see spiders and used syringes inside.

The front door of this structure is missing its knob;

The hole now filled with a half rotting corncob.

Okay, so, this place is creepy as fuck.

I love to explore but I won’t push my luck.

remains constant

A time ere present day

sparse              scattered

“fuck the world” thoughts.

Now,

time is present day,

constant       yet  chaotic

these thoughts remain.

I was born before “mental illness” caught on;

so I lived every day through a song,

on the radio I would sing along,

with the bands and music; my heart belonged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

playing with words again

Scream no one can hear

Come undone no one can see

______________________________________

Dream screams; no one hears,

they’ve lost their ears.

Stab wounds, there is no blood,

no scars, no love.

Why, why, why.

Do you think you

need to know why.

Spread your arms, flap and run,

perhaps you will take flight, like a penguin.

I am a balloon. I float above the town, a renegade.

Beer, wine and a bottle of whiskey.

Marlboros, a joint, just you and me.

TODAY-RIGHT NOW!

I HATE LIFE-

SORRY BUT IT’S THE TRUTH.

_____________________________________________________________

No smiles, just tears, no hope, just fears. No, no, no, no, no…
