Truth Under Tongue

Image result for swearing on bible painting

raw cheeks bleed
mascara
stain..

i care it cuts
to hear,

but you’re not the storm
i tremble for
in lungs..

it’s a fermenting fear of truth
dissolving under
tongue.

Star Born

Image result for star flower gif

drawing on the
power of
one..

star outshining
a canvas..

of flickers while
wriggling in
and out
of..

wormholes in
the cosmic
head,

squeaking ‘tween
chain bars,

birthed through
layers of
garden
dark

like death..

to be picked as
newborn
star,

no thorns, so
no blood
shed.

2020-12-26- Shadow Boxer

SHADOWBOXER | bardofthewoods.com

boxing days
away

bare
knuckled,

i don’t want
trouble

yet find it at
each bend,

if you ever catch
my shadow

arching
over..

best we clash on
civil terms,

life’s a tough love
teacher
and..

we’ve much
to learn.

Unmanned Rifle

ArtStation - Sniper ambush, Darek Zabrocki

it’s not like we’re
a bad shot,

our sights are
crooked,
sure..

and we’ve not
aimed high
enough
to..

curb next sniper
with fears to
prove,

it’s not like we’re
a bad shot..

this is where we are
with what
we’ve
done

so this is what
we’ve
got.

and the trigger
just gets
bigger

until sniper
rests his
finger.

..no point in jabbing fingers in ribs of others, ’til the inner threat’s been tamed.
