Word of the Day Challenge #55-Untitled Poem

Howling at the moon
mange eaten dog
baying strength
snapping at rivals
sure
so very sure
of its place in the pack.
Alpha.
Believed to be.
Joker.
Even that is an insult.
To the Joker.
Manipulator.
Manipulated is more like.
Stroke that ego.
Play to its insecurities
puffed up pride
strut like a peacock
one has to wonder
what is it like to live in its world?
Throwing money around
rippling like water
talk so loud
inane mutterings
seriously
is he insane?
Narcissism.
Grandiose claims
of being bigger than any god
past
present
or
future.
Claims have been floated
of how popular he is
(was) 
leading the world anew
rebuilding
strengthening the walls
keeping out the riffraff
or so he claims.
Question? 
Over here:
lean forward
eager to spew
indoctrinated passive voice.
Loved by the man
adored by thousands of women
all children want to be his.
Yes
Yes
is there a question in this?
How did a man such as he
adored
desired
(maligned)
much maligned
by those who do not know
(do not understand)
how is it….. 
please do explain…..
he lost those millions 
had to be crowned 
by his peers
only now to implode?
Straighten from the podium
mouth slitted in rage
arm out
finger pointing
let’s go
it is time to leave.
Point has been made
flashed across the screen
even with no answer forthcoming.
Minds begin to stir
awakening from dubious air
time for change
it’s a’comin’.

Untitled Word of the Day Poem #23

Tell me
is it easy?
To deny?
To look aside
from our love?
I know
not dreams
not fantasy
truth
neither of us had seen.
Welling
rage
tears
pain
fear
look in my eyes
tell me dear
that you love me not.
I wonder
am I ridiculous?
I will play
I will pet
call me when you will
I will come.
tail between my legs
biting my inner lip.
I need you
want you
love your so.
Where do we go?
What path do we take?
Tell me lover
tell me true
what the hell
is going on…..
between me and you?
Is this an act?
When you brush my hair back
look deep into my eyes
lips so close
I can feel breath
upon my neck
making me blush
tremble
weak at the knees.
I want to believe
we will be
as once we were
we shall be again.
In my heart
secrets caged
love I feel
so hard to let go
although…..
I pretend
I turn aside
crazy smile on my lips
yearnings I have
not to speak.
Fallen hard I have
desperate to let go
knowing
you have my heart
my love
forever more.
