Agitator for Disharmony

I am watching
destruction of a world
I thought
indestructible.
Fires roar in the night
cities consumed
rage
incoherent
no longer able to avoid.
I am watching
leaders fail
desperate to fulfill lies
tear at truth
deny responsibility
for the death of all.
Could have been avoided
if faced sooner
yet still
doubt reigns
amongst the truth nayers.
Fiction
not fact
despite what is shown 24/7
on every news channel.
I am watching.
I am bleeding.
Tears wave my sight.
There is something backward
with the joy that you feel
shouting for more murder
for more beatings
for more violence
than for joining
an ever growing roar
for peace.

****8 Days****

I see you there.
Peeking around the corner
whimpering when I catch sight
wanting to disappear
wanting to hide
but I know you are there
come into the light.
Lank hair
desperate eyes
pallid pallor
tears seep
curled inward
blackness coiling around
tethering you….
to anger
to pain
to horror
blinding you
unwilling you were to see.
No one wants that nightmare.
No one wants to live in the dark.
Take my hand
feel my embrace
I am so sorry I left you for so long.
You must have been scared
not understanding
kept
like a dirty secret
of which no one talks.
Come stand with me
meld with me
for you are I
I am you.
Without you
without your pain…..
my pain
my addiction
my rage…..
Beautiful woman
come into the light
let go
raise our eyes to sunlit skies
for we are one.
I had to leave you alone
it took me awhile to return
yet here I am
here you are
baby we will succeed!
