Standing in Line


I watch the faces

on the street.

 

The aftermath

of what has been

thrust

at us daily.

 

Numb to

the overgrown

lies.

 

Deceptions

meant to

seduce.

 

Trust issues

nightmares

leave us tossing

in our beds at night.

 

Standing in line

praying for salvation

in the power

of our convictions.

Give in to the Darkness


Give in
to the darkness 

let it spill out 
bleeding 
upon the page

Let the darkness 
soak into the paper 
as it leaves you

Leaves
your heart 
your soul

Use the pages 

release 
the darkness within

Give in to it

Write what 
haunts you
scares you

Let those feelings 
go 
where they may

untethered 
unrestrained

get it out

Then let it go
