Happily Ever After Slips Away

In NEW!, poetry on November 13, 2010 at 5:06 PM

Pretend away my sadness

take my hand

pull me towards make-believe

show me how again

make all this life

go somewhere else

let something better

take its place

~

Pretend away the lonliness

fill up the emptiness

hold up the mirror

I so desperately

want to see

a reflection I recognize

a person I know is me

~

It’s been a long, long time

since I laughed

It’s been a long, long time

since I heard laughter

It’s been a long, long time

since I remembered

or

sat around a dinner table

or

looked into another’s eyes

or

saw that spark

or

sparkles of light

sparkles with life

or just

shared a moment of pure joy

just for a second

or just

felt like it’s worth it

just

for a moment

~

It’s been a long, long time

since I remembered

~

Millions in this city

Makes me truly lonely

when I am alone

Pretend with me

I want to come back home

100 Years Lament

In 21st Century Culture, FOR YOUR CONSIDERSTION, poetry on November 11, 2010 at 4:13 PM

 

100 Years Lament

(Tune of Traditional Irish Drinking Ballad)

Lost are the boys of yesteryear

Leading triumphant with hurry-some cheer

Gone are the days of remember when

Soon to be forgotten like them

ø

Where did they go, some lament

While others claim, they were wasted and spent

I, by the fire, speak not a word

We all be at fault

as far as I’m concerned

 

ø

 

Broken shadows without hands for soap

No glad tidings before the rope

All is set and quiet my dear

Lighting the candles slowly in fear

Oh the men with their hats

The women with their bras

The chocolate in the grocery store

The writing on the walls

 

The lil’ babies talk

only to them screens

Human flesh to thems’

jus’a screen

 

From one generation

to the next generation

 

It’s your own damn fault

It’s our own damn fault.


Create the image that you will

Fall upon sword after sword

with each kill

Gone are the days of yesteryear

Gone are the sounds of rowdy cheer

 

Lost are the boys of all those years

Leading triumphant future cheers

 

Gone are the days of remember when

Soon to be forgotten like them

Gone are the days of remember when

Soon to be forgotten like them

 

Where did they go, some lament

While others claim, they were wasted and spent

I, by the fire, speak not a word

We be at fault cuz we n’ever learn

Oh the men with their hats

The women with their bras

The chocolate in the grocery store

The writing on the walls

 

The lil’ babies talk

only to them screens

Human flesh to thems’

jus’a screen

 

From one generation

to the next generation

 

It’s your own damn fault

It’s our own damn fault
