Reflections (re post)


Gazing through the glass

Headlights
Tail lights

Screeching tires
Instant silence

Tailpipe vapor hanging in the cold still air
Sparkling snow on frozen unforgiving ground

In an instant
World upside down

Memories flooding
Overwhelming darkness

Rushing heartbeat
Thoughts only of what used to be

Reflecting
Time standing still

Past
Present
Future
All staring back

Silent tears falling
Scars forming on a shattered heart

Lost
Speechless
Another unhappy ending

Alone
Only my reflection staring back in the glass…

Staring


Staring down the barrel
Trigger mine to pull

So many questions
No answers to be found

Wore out the path
Dizzy from round and round

Unable to stand
Unwilling to fall

Lost
Trapped

Swirling visions
Screaming voices
Laughing eyes
Broken dreams stabbing

Only one way out

Liquid gun
Pulling the trigger

Staggering happily as the whiskey regains control

Bang!!! bang!!!

Goodnight reality
Hello again to drunk and happy…

Groovy


Psssttt

Hey man

Yeah you

Come over here

Come on come on I ain’t got all day

Now then what you want?

What do you need?

And if I ain’t got it

I’ll get it straight away

Hesitation

Pondering

Yeah man got any groovy grass?

I need to zone for a few hours

Stutter

Stammer

Lot’s of pocket checking

Uh… seems I am fresh out

But you can get it straight away

You said so yourself

Nope sorry

Can’t help

All sold out of that

But I have got lots of other stuff

Shots

Pills

Liquids

Uppers

Downers

Twisteds

Tangles

From hearing things

To hearing nothing at all

Wobbly knees

Twitching eyes

And a host of possibly life threatening side effects

So man what you need?

Nothing man

You got nothing I need

I just wanted some

Not a lot

But more that a little bit

So sorry, I don’t want all that man-made shit

I was just looking for a dude

The man

The cat with all the groovy grass…

Remember Your Words?


Remember your words?

The ones you spoke that August day

The promise you made

The one to be my spirit guide

To lift me up

To fix me up

To fill the hollow inside

Remember your words?

The ones you spoke that December day

The promise you made

The one to stand by my side

The one where you said

I am different

Not like the rest

I will never leave

Remember your words?

I will

Until my last dying breath…

Lost


In ink

Permanent

Every little thought filling the screen

Releasing
Venting
Showing every scar
Open mind for all to see

Anger
Love
Depression
Suicide
Darkness
Digging into the unforgettable past

Twisting words
Hiding meanings
Sacred bonds
Shared agony
Bruises faded yet never healing

Bottle calling
Only temporary soothing

Loving but halfheartedly
Always afraid of tomorrows next tragedy

Trapped
Broken wings
Reaching out
Slippery hands
Falling
Never landing

Always wanting
Constant struggling
Uneasy laughing
Thorny path
No direction
Outdated crumpled map
Wandering in circles

Just lost…
