"Burning Roses"

 "Burning Roses"

As she sheds this version of herself I too relate; close to naked as can be,

so close to the ice yet living within- reaching farther deep.

All I am and all you are the same; hide and seek a dangerous, a very old game.

The time draws near for the birth of the Pumpkin King; the time draws near for the historical endless killing-game.

I know I am not all that ready but you grow and I grow; I admire you dear old oak tree, don’t you already know?

How do you survive looking at this mess of a world all day and all night? I close my doors, my eyes to escape the fright.

My mind is enough; incomparable to this garbage.

My chaos is enough; I know only the eccentric understands our language.

I just need some silence; some darkness so I can cry, turn the light out for a second, it’s gotten so easy to lie.

So what? Can I not be pleased with myself, is that not allowed. I am robbed, only of my creations can I be proud.

The moment you fruit you begin to end, bury me by her roots, my giant green friend.

Dead End.

“Eating Dust”

  “Eating Dust” Comparing myself to yesterdays; I’m always preparing to die. An eye for an eye; therefore, a slave master becomes the slave if only for the lifespan of a fly. The neighboring Red Planet is our home, as soon as we destroy our mom. Maybe this is what we did to her sister Venus, like parasites with no discretion. If I’m so ashamed of humanity, what urges me to live on? So tired of nursing the world; I am one, against billions. I must see this through to the very end, I cannot Rest In Peace not knowing. The dimmest light in the room and yet the only one pulsing. I am one with Earth; I am very angry, soon there’ll be global-snowing.
