Ten Poems

(a collection of twelve poems)

X. The Sanctum of Shredded Souls

A bridge
A phone
A sign
There is hope

Some tape
Some paper
Some writing
Out of order

A button
A tone
A working phone
Hello

Other side
Of the paper
On the bottom
For the lulz

11. Rift

What happened to you?
You have scars all over you.
Why are you trying to move so fast?
It’s almost as if you’re running from something.
There’s nothing behind you.
Even if there was, do you think you actually could have outran them like this?
Maybe it has symbolic meaning to you.
Could I ask what it is?
When was the last time you ate?
Here, have some meat.
What has someone done to your life such that your first reaction to food is a cringe of distrust?
It feels like someone has stolen your world from you
I wish I could know what made your world
Like your paw
Rifted
But really
I will not
And can not
Hold anything against you
If you find yourself
Unable to share

12. Adrift

Walking along
In the realm
Of the society of a thousand lies
That operates heartlessly
On the whims of the selected majorities
I conclude
In all practicality
Logic makes a machine
Emotion makes a person
Ethics make a bigot

13. Resonance

Somewhere floating
Forlorn droplet
Cosmic echo
Once a hope
Crying aqua
Pointing towards
Hasty letters
On a sign
“Home this was once
Ours this was once
But here we tore
And here we bled”
Somewhere floating

14. Radiance

Missing
An obedient dog
Loves its loving owner

15. Irradiance

There is a warmth
That one can actually conjure

Once one has truly
Measured the depth of the abyss

And can sincerely know
That the bottom is in sight

There is a warmth
That lets one know that
XV. The Mausoleum of Headless Souls
It will probably get better
But the flames have quite the
16. Resilience

To go on
And burn more
To have more fuel
For brighter flames
To fight back
Against the hope
To become more
Consuming and smiling
To find
All in their path  to no longer have but
To have had

17. Real

Hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot

19. Irreal

Unlost

Finding ways through
Heavy air
Underground
Souls still here
In concord with dissonance
Shining emotion
Embracing

Flying

XIX. Rex

A thought
A world
A will
A beast

A thought
A world
A will
A name

A thought
A world
A will
A king

A thought
A world
A will
A wreck
