Dynamite Touch

Dynamite

Often in danger

of losing our mind

Often in danger

of losing our life

***

Often our mouth

refuses to shut

Often our mouth

offends and upsets

***

Often in woe

we project insecurities

Often in woe

we attack and we ruin

Poetry

Caus-Tic (Part II)

Stashed down deep

in the bowels of my mind

memories ooze,

***

seep,

***

trickle,

***

disturb this sunny day

***

And so it starts again,

this daily chore of pretence

as i leap and bound and cad:

A puppet show of joy

***

Yet closer still i sense a fissure

spreading through my soul

***

Its dam will burst.  A tsunami

smothering

my smile.

***

The strings will sag

as on bended knees

I crumble,

crying,

completely spent.

*** ***
