Dried Up

Mummified has got to be the way to describe it
I find myself drying up in these layers
Of anger and faded hope
No refreshment
Can’t move
I feel as if I’m dead sometimes
So paralyzing is this trap
I created it too
I chose to be here struggling for each forward step
Feeling more brittle by the hour
Hoping not to snap
And it’s all my fault


every day

every day

Magic Portrait

Looks like the painting on the wall
Is beginning to absorb the world around it
What a wonderful portrait
That gathers from all
Around to return a shiny new perspective
In case we’ve lost sight of the whole picture

I shined a light at the painting
The colors spread into oblivion in
Cascading whorls of infinite hues
If only I had an eye for those
I would find a brush, paint shimmering summers
And do Van Gogh proud

Is this my lack of sleep?
The longer I stare the the closer it creeps
The image is burning its centuries
Into my blood and lingering in my arteries
With fantastic warmth and color
That even the summer sun could not
Penetrate into my ruddy skin



Summer Classes

I’ve been taking the sun for granted lately
Letting all the stress and such pains
Jilt me of my appreciation of each day
I feel like I’ve been tricked out of a happier life
By the life I chose for myself
But how can that be?
I want to know why I can’t see past
My problems into where my joy is waiting




Sometimes it seems like time
Is pretending not to obscure my friendships
Then suddenly wiping away a facade
Leaving the intimacy of who we were
But it’s intimacy between strangers
It petrifies me that the thought crosses my mind
That this isn’t worth holding on to
