2020-11-18 – The Colour’s You

i tried to choose a
colour to best
describe
you,

but no variation quite
captures your
true mood,

blasting flashes of
all tones..

drab and dusty, and
dyes that let life
bleed thru

++++

you’re a blend
of beauty’s
every
hue,

and if i brushed
my heart in
only one..

colour, it’d
be you.

2020-10-15 – Different Says Who?

Praise it, curse it
i’ll still miss..

most of it, though
“i don’t yet know
any of this”..

guess i know more
or less than
i admit,

except through
the cloak
of text.

+++

True, i recoil from blind
interrogations, and
poky probings
through and
through

x-ray’s screechy
headlights,

as my penance
for thinking
different

than you..

who’s only
right.

..i’m you, though fierce you may decry it.

2020-10-03 – Skies in Different Eyes

you spite the martyr
in my fight,

and the butterfly
for its gift of
flight,

and i don’t like that
you won’t release
your old kites
to brighter
skies,

it’s clear we reel
past life’s
frames,

through our
given eyes,

++++

neither right, nor
absolute, yet we’ve
boiled down our
worth to lies
and truths.

..at least that’s one heavy heart’s truth.
