Panic


I’m sitting here wishing,

Waiting for a trip beyond this.

Nothing can keep me from this moment

Not even the death that grips my mind.

The grace of all missery, dressed in a gown of

black.

The fury of her hatred, a burning polaris

igniting a trepid reaction to a meaningless vision

The heart beating faster than the speed of

light

time around me drowns and moans

Gasping for air I’m sinking slowly waiting

Sinking, deep, dangerous, dark, distraught

Time has gone, light has gone

beats beat faster

sense is senselessness without emotion

Distorted smashed into shards

Filled with fear it’s closing me down

No returning from this eruption

I’m a canibal

Eating my own soul

Woman


She turned on the radio
It was maddening
How’d she know I was here
I wanted to kiss her but –
I sensed her reserve
I didn’t feel like sleeping
Soon It was midnight
I walked Down the street. And back
To my place – there was half a bottle of
Wine left on the coffee table
I couldn’t hold back a sob
But…I’ve got to tell her
The sun was really up
Painful and yellow.
