My Poems~

Lies.

They tumble out of my mouth,

I try to snatch, and grab them back,

Time runs with them, makes them fly,

They exist now,

Hanging,

Festering,

In the air above us.

Greedily snatched away with the speed of sound,

Into another living thing.

Afraid to open my mouth and apologize,

Afraid more will escape,

Time runs from me,

Rapidly stealing the seconds I have to wipe them out,

I know the truth,

She screams in my ear, weeps, begs,pleads,

I panic.

I fumble and fall blindly,

Arms reaching for the right sounds,

They tumble out of my mouth,

I wait, treachery clouds my eyes,

A storm is manifesting…

It registers.

Thunder growls.

They die.

Raindrops slide.

She triumph,

Sunless sky.

I wait…

Lightning emotion bolt from its eyes,

Crack, Split my mouth,

Fry my thoughts,

It walks away,

In brokenĀ pieces.
