Pink Slip

September 30, 2013

The pressure builds
As project on project
Rises high
Pushing up into the sky
Growing, growing!
Never slowing.
The sun grows dark
With impeding doom
As these projects grow
And fill the room.
It never ends,
Oh it never ends!
Keeps on stacking
And I keep on cracking
But there is always more
Endlessly more
Break my back
I feel so sore.
Another project
The final one
I tried to do it
I tried to run.
But far too much
Work built up
And like a volcano
It did erupt.
Spilling problems
Doubt and stock.
Like lava, sulfur,
Smoke and rock.
Crashing and banging
Burning and breaking.
Two weeks.

I quit loving it
For you to feel better now
Anything for you

Pillow talk

September 28, 2013

Late night sitting close
The heat if your constant breath
The nape of my neck

Passionate kisses
Seductive motions in bed
Melody if love

Your reading heartbeat
Slow and steady in your chest
Felt with one smooth hand

A Late night lover
A morning after stunner
A life-long mistake

Climbing out

September 26, 2013

This rut is
But an ephemeral hole
To be filled
And forgotten
As days turn to nights
And nights to days
Leaves from green
To red, and finally brown.
Budding once more
As you rise again
A more powerful
And beautiful

Lost soul

The darkest corner
Is the one where people go
To forget themselves


September 24, 2013

Feeling deflated
A bitter tune plays
Everything just hated
It never goes away.
Pain and remorse
Grief and agony
The emotional course
Never ending.
Wishing for an end
To this gigantic mess
Not the slightest trend
To being on course.
Finally giving in
That there is no point
In avoiding the sin
As it envelopes me.
