Keep the lid on, keep the doors shut.
The locks on the window are open,
keeping my heart on the bay.
I often wonder, why we go back to the hands;
hands that we held that soon morphed.
Morphed into chains: 
holding us down, denying the simple pleasures.
The pictures of the happy days, easy street:
soon one of the smiling faces hung on the wall.
There are days of complete standstill, numb:
when a stroke or two of sharp, crimson dripping
seems the only tangent to any sense of life.

My mother has been around these days, 
she told me today that I looked pretty,
added that I looked how I did before I left home.
I scream in my head, does she not hear?
Does she not know, I ask myself. 
Then a voice reminds me, of all the times
teeth sinking deep into my tongue 
till I taste the iron in that red liquid.
My mother told me yesterday 
that I have not been kind lately.
She is not inside, watching me pushed over the edge.
Precipice of all that could be, held back by what I am.

I think of Plath these days, and Lady Lazarus.
A phoenix from the ashes, 
but all that remains now is ashes. 
The leaves crumble under my feet,
it seems as though my shoes were wet just now.
I think of heaven these days, 
whether the ones in hell look up or down at it.
I drag my feet on cold tiles,
my heart heavy with guilt filling my lungs.
There are always longer lengths and shorter ones
or rather Green’s smaller and bigger infinities.
And I wonder whether I am making one at all.

  • My eyes burn and tear up on the side
but this time there are no buts.

It's a familiar feeling, 
it engulfs me and,
wraps its arms around my frame
choking and bringing me to shame.

It does not let go,
like a lover that is blinded,
by fear and overwashed
by the anguish of leaving.

There is no kingdom come,
only sinners and their kins,
dripping lies and dropping names
jurors of all their kind.

We grin and laugh,
smile from cheek to cheek.
Under the moonlight, 
we are dogs and wolves.

Because we have been told,
raised to believe and practice
cries and failures are spoken of
only when the curtain falls.

So when all preach the same,
who do you turn to?
