poems from a time distant, but still achingly true
June 29 004

I look at the ground
To steady my feet
Study my emotions
But the ground falls away
Into a cloud of colors
Dark bright
I try to catch the fog with the mind
Once again fades away
Past the night
In forgotten lands lit only by pain
Forgotten in life

June 28, 004

Emotions cloud thoughts
I push away
the focus
that lurks
in the back
in the dark
of my mind

Pushing away
To deal with later
Remaining still stalks

June 28, 004

Pushing away emotions
Until tomorrow
I forge ahead into the now
Attempting to forget
Leave behind whom I am
Strip heart from mind
To leave it behind
Lingering in the dust
Hopefully forgotten
By me
By the world

I write but
The words
Don’t matter
The stroke of the pen
Wont matter

What matters
Is that the words take form
I realize the reasons
The words exist

Reasons I
Desire to ignore
I can hide
No more

Too painful
To know
Too stubborn
To hide
Too real
To rationalize
And they remain

I write
But the words
Don’t matter
I can no longer

Clouded windows
Removed myself from this world

Clouded windows
I refuse to look through the fog

I am afraid of what I might not see
Fears of what the world may not show
I refuse to think
Refuse to feel
Refuse to see
So afraid my world is real

Clouded windows
Safe within
And yet I’m suffocating
I refuse to think
Refuse to feel
So afraid my world may not be real
