Illusions

i am but a ghost walking the halls
of my former life
without justice, without light;
all that was, is lost now
to the veil of illusion
that’s fallen from my eyes…
my whispers echo unheard
against the bare walls that
once held accomplishment
and pride…
nothing remains now but memory
of a me that was never real,
but lost inside a maze of falsehood
and pretend;
one can never measure up to what’s
never been there
and my heart, fearful and full of rage,
would take this image of myself
that it held to be true
and burn it into flame
and let the dust settle upon these empty
walls with hate filled shame

i am finished

~I am finished~

Hate floats below my smile,
masking deep pain boiling
just below my throat;

A line through time is binding;
each end a new beginning
held by two…

But where is my end? When do
I get to pull myself this way
And that?

The heart can only take so much
dissonance before it breaks open
and releases…

I am finished

Ode to Hate

Ode to Hate

Oh Boil and Bubble!  Your black ooze,
It Covers me, troubles me,
Witches brew, smothers me;
Dark potion doubles my feelings for you-
This witch’s brew.

Green liquid, I drank you
I can no longer supplant you
Obey your dark orders, I do!
I have no other feelings but you-
This witch’s brew.

Cauldron of darkness! I worship
Your starkness, I hold nothing left
That is true;
Pain and lies and pesticide-
This horrible witch’s brew.

Oh! That I could return
To before, my covenant with you!
