A Series of Unlikely Explanations

It really should not have happened

That was what everyone believed

That was what I believed I believed

But it had happened

 

I told them that it was because I was wary

They thought I meant I was weary

But there is a great difference in these two things

Because I really was doubtful and cautious about it

 

I told them that I was annoyed

They thought I meant I was no longer employed

There assessment is correct, but neither is it truthful

I have never been employed

 

They really should know me better

 

I told them that I had been angry

They thought I had been hungry

And they offered me food

And told me it still didn’t explain why I did it

 

I told them I was being spiteful

But they thought I was just being stupid and hateful

It could have been that

But it could have been paying them tit for tat

 

They really really should have known me better

 

For the truth of why I had kissed my baby sister on the nose

Was to wish with all my hope that she’ll be pretty and protected when she grows

Two Halves Of A Whole Unseen

Two halves of a whole unseen

A two of wholes never should have been

A child’s despair over dreams

An adult’s anger of unproportioned means

Do they all fill themselves

Do they ever go empty?

There are no soulmates

Create your own destiny

Two halves a whole too shy

Two wholes made a half, please cry

Nightmares left in this life

Make your life your own

Picture: Soulmates

A Dark Shadow Creeps

In the eyes if this old dog
A dark shadow creeps
In its blindness
Shelby is suffering

In the branches of this barren tree
A dark shadow creeps
No leaves, no roots
It feels nothing

In the limbs of this child
A dark shadow creeps
Young and sickly
A short life ends

In the heart of this old man
A dark shadow creeps
Long life, prosperous
It as well is blown out

Blown out like a light
Eaten by the dark shadow at night
