A little less than last.

My indignant fears
Wreck havoc
Leaving doubt no promised benefit.

Holding instincts captive
Isolated from common sense.

The poison holds
Long after the damage done…
And that is when conscience
Speaks up with the disapproving superiority.

When the heart sighs with heavy regret.

And i mumble numbly:
Where were you Love to blind me then?
To stop my embittered words
Glistening sharp in all its bloodlust.
To halt my irate accusations
From hurting who we adore?
Who we now behold
Wounded
And perchance loving us back
A little less…
a little less than last.

The only way

It is the ONLY way!

You declare
Your conviction
Daring me to challenge
You hold your revelation
newly formed
So young, so resplendent in its promise
stubbornly wrought
Blind to the stains
That leech into the knowledge sphere
There is no room for doubt:

‘There is no safe, sure way to
Salvation
This is the only way
The only way…’

I see it, the want
I see it, its seemly answers
I see it, sulking
I see it, denied
I see it, lost
I see it, unwanted
I see it, unsought
I see it, empty
Waiting for its time
Uncaring whether it will ever come
Where it had no means to ever go…

Her way

Embers whisked into a slow fury
From just the way you look her way
Every candied word a bitter pill
Every too wide smile a taunt
Every glance, another minute chance
That I fail…
That I fade into the frame
Anger, fear, guilt, agony, shame
All want to lay their searing
delirious blame
Every accusation
Burns….burns…..burns
to be named.
