The Aftermath

Standard

Mangled eyes amongst the destruction
bear the burden in a web of reflections
while the animal chorus poisons sleep
and shattered vermin work kneeling
along the skeleton universe.

Death’s vanity
slowly fires the guilty breath
as the tentacles of a prayer
secretly escape the viper’s mouth,
while children like ravaged daisies
mirror the splintered bombs.

I should renounce you

Standard

I should renounce you
I should denounce you
I should forget you
Or I will regret to.

I will renounce you
I will denounce you
I will forget you
And I will forget to.

I should have renounced you
I should have denounced you
I should forget you
But I will regret to.

I shall not renounce you
I shall not denounce you
I shall not forget you
Because I truly love you.

The Vultures

Standard

The vultures of the family
Take their pickings
While the widow
Stands alone
without her shadow.
He will not follow her
For one last tomorrow.

The vultures pick his bones
Neath the gravestones where he was laid
After respects had been paid
And sympathy displayed.
They all mourned the loss
But the widow bore the cross.
Only death can lighten the burden
From the shoulders of this woman.

The vultures will come again
Without regret or shame.
To rape her money and her home
As if she’d never been known.
One thing they forgot to learn
Sooner or later will come their turn.
Stranger, brother, sister, friend.
The vulture cycle can never end.

There’s Nothing

Standard

There’s nothing
in this world
to make me love
YOU.
There’s nothing
YOU
can do to make
your wish
come true.
There’s nothing
YOU
can say to change
my train
of thought.
There’s nothing
YOU
can dream that
can fulfil
the wish
YOU
have sought.
