Closeup of a pouring soda on white background

Soda is flavorful

Many tiny fireworks explode in your mouth

A burst of flavor

A hint of sugar

Fizz

I am growing tired my son

it is time for me to lay down

I am growing tired my son

lifting my eyelids is like lifting a dozen weights

I am growing tired my son

images are becoming a blur

I am growing tired my son

for it is time to stop holding my last breath

Life is like

a roller coaster ride

One minute you are high above the clouds

A second passes

and

you’re down where you started

images

I talk

It just echoes back

I look up

no one is there

Darkness

Sitting in a chair

by myself

Alone

When I write a poem

I like to write the cold hard facts of the real world

No world is perfect

Every world is way below perfect

All of my feelings are tied up in a knot in the back of my head
I choke back the tears

I never express my feelings out loud

Low profile

Head down

Silence

Don’t talk

Don’t say a word

A tear rolls down my face

 Sadness is a weakness

So I don’t express it

Being afraid only makes people want to scare you more

So I pretend I’m the one they should be afraid of

Being yourself makes people hate you

So I put on a blank face and stare at the wall

Birth

First gasp of air

Cold

Fresh

Beautiful

First glance

Light

Shapes

Colorful

First time hearing your voice

Soft

Smooth

Like a song

A Barbie

Perfect small nose

Petite body

Blond luscious hair

A Human

No one is like a Barbie

Not even close

Q

Anger is evil

So everyone must be evil

Happiness makes you feel crazy

So everyone must be crazy

Love is perfect

So why isn’t anyone perfect?

When I grab your hand I’m in the Stone Age

When you touch my cheek the clocks go backwards

You’re a Time Lord

From planet Gallifrey

But you’re an alien to your own kind

You’re The Doctor

You beautiful crow

Your black feathers glisten in the wind

Your soul flies free

Your body lies gracefully

but cold

hard

stiff

on the ground

I used to watch you fly higher than the other birds

I used to watch you hold your head up high

You beautiful bird

Reckless

But you were no coward

You were smart

Too smart

You found out

That’s why they had to kill you

By H

 

The old dragon steals his last lamb

Rumpelstiltskin takes his last child

The farmer harvests his last wheat

They all go to their grave

Then quietly go to sleep

The seamstress sews her last ball gown

The cobbler makes his last shoes

The queen takes a last glance at her crown

Then all of their souls go dancing in the wind

– H

Dragon soul
