A Soft Hard-Break

Shatteredglass-1

she says it
would
 not be
her
fault if he
were to fall
in love with her
he thanks his
stars that she
looks away
for such a smile
is a sun
the brightest day
fire for trial

paper heart
incinerates
scars & burns
pain it gives
but time it takes
wait in turn
stones & sticks
& clever tricks
all we have
evaporates

The bugs they crawl
& buzz around

They make a mess
Of their hometown
They leave you lie
There on the ground
It breaks your heart
Tears of a clown
They never smile
They always frown
But I can’t let
Them bring you down
I once was lost
But now you’re found

I’ll see you when
You come around

As his nights slowly
     become her days

& the tether between
     snaps & fades

She made him as sharp
     as dull razor blades

We say we will
     but we’ll never change

He sits at the bottom
    of the shower

Minute after minute
     hour after hour

& though it helps
    with the aches

Her scent it won’t
     wash away

Genuflects & supplicates
     he tries to pray

But the Christ
     don’t want him anyway

So he twists
     as he breaks

Into shapes
      he couldn’t possibly make

Love has become our new magic

For each other we all perform

We pray the next is different

We always find out it’s a trick

 

Yet, stupid with astonishment

Desperate to know the secret

& against all admonishment

We still beg for enlightenment

 

Whether we’re shown or being told

The secret is always revealed

& so it changes how we feel

That magic grows tired & old

 

In fact that trick now makes us sick

A spinning spiral so tragic

Nevermore, will it be the same

We only got ourselves to blame

 

Human hearts need to be deceived

It makes them beat & still believe

In miracles, through which they feed

Without stories, but tragedies

I drift out by myself

I sell out from myself

No one nowhere else

ss

The sun will burn away

The world will turn away

Here we holy hell

s

This skin does not want felt

This air I never felt

Done deal being dealt

s

The truth they never tell

Whisper but do not tell

Sit there by yourself
