Poetry

Observation Only

Stuck in my shadow

watching my body move

*****

Autopilot

*****

I watch on

helpless

*****

mouth moving,

making words;

grin glower

titter growl

****

I’m no houdini

I live here now

until the chemicals

seep through this robot

into my shadow.

Poetry

Does Insanity Cause Creativity

Or does creativity cause insanity?
Our wandering

mind 

lusts for gems,

jewels, poetic gold-dust.

***

We crawl through the tunnels,

the warrens, the burrows;

smothered and swallowed

by horrors a-plenty.

Drowing in visions

of murder and rape,

Swimming against currents

frothing with blood;

engulfed in a hurricane

of tears from all victims.

***

Cannot contain, cannot ignore.

Our knees buckle, we crumble

until we dare hold our pen.
