He loved his grandpa with all his heart
All the hugs in the world
Could not heal him
How we dreaded the time when
Memories would be all that’s left

it happened all so fast
it was a swoosh it was blur
it was all so very intense
and I remember every minute
every gruesome detail
every awesome moment
every breath
every look
every word
every silence

I remember days
turning to weeks
I remember wanting to hold on
to never let go

I remember you fading
vanishing before us
I remember you
giving us time
to say goodbye

I remember
the peace in your heart
but mostly
it’s the love I remember

I cut to see if I feel how it's like being human,
I cut to see the pain relinquish inside,
I cut for all the memories that remain to drain down in the sewage
What symbols life runs with death in that rusty pipe.

A slash here and a slash there,
What happened in the past?
A slash here and there,
Soon the memories don't last.

Scissors, knives, razors and sharp edges
keeps a bloody smile, no more weep.
Slice and dice, trim more than the hedges
And I don't care if I go to deep.

One scar closer to a never ending dream,
I don't care if I go to deep.

I Feel Like Dancing

Drink me ill this pleasure still,
And cure me with your poisoned pills-
Before I lose all my strength,
But, oh! I lost that long ago!
Dreamily dancing to and fro...
With legs of lead and no feet to stand,
And a phantom partner to hold my hand
A languid trance and lulled Romance
To seize me whole in its expanse
Never I yield, though quite out of breath-
Drunkenly dancing in the Depths Of Death

Reminders we are not finite
Lest we should forget
Time tends to stop and hover
In a slow motion whirl
Caught in an endless loop
Like a 45 record that skips
It’s a typical phenomena
In all hospital waiting rooms
A soupy silence so very palpable
Contemplating the meaning of life
And what is left of it
Prisoner caught in a time warp
While life goes on outside this window

COVID-19 is Everywhere

"Its corona time" they said
I really hope I don't wind up dead
Many people have such as Tom Hanks
He's been tested. It wasn't a prank

Stores are running out of Purell and toilet paper
COVID-19 is like a game and we are all desperate players

Wash your hands and say a prayer
Becasue coronavirus is everywhere

You sit and stare
upon your dish,
no strength to bear
even as I wish.

For you to live
forever strong
were mine to give
your life prolong.

But being neither 
here nor there
Death comes hither
So be prepared.

The fear of losing you is real
It’s in the countless daily moments
Of a diagnosis still echoing in our ear 
A verdict forever stuck in our throat
Maybe better to know but at what cost
Trying to keep illness at bay
Aggressive the counter attack
Life never to be the same
Dark thoughts still lurk uninvited
As sometimes your eyes tear up
With no detectable provocation
And in the hush of night when all is quiet
The silence seems unbearable
Within the shadow of a broken heart
So we strive to live each day
As though life is the gift it is

Our hometown is
We don’t know what to do
Or how to feel about this all

That’s what came next
Real sickness from battle
Everyone was sick of all

Loud noises
That’s all we heard
Constant crashes and cracks
Dying eardrums, unhearable

People are hurt
Nobody left unchanged
The hurt of this has changed all lives

Step after step I move forward.
Into the abyss, 	
Into the pit
Black, thick, silent,
The pool is filled
 Yet the tar is so bleak and empty.
Fully submerged there is nothing, 
Nothing but me
Nothing to smell hear or see
So I focus on me
My weaknesses
My faults
My mistakes
I feel all the pain as the air leaves my lungs
As the pressure of all that I’ve done bears down upon my chest and back.
Bones bend and muscles contract.
That last bit of air
 Right before sweet eternal sleep
 Escapes into the darkness
And for that moment the pain stops and the pressure fades…
I am cold.
I am lost.
Floating back to the top…
I inhale 
And life is restored…until next time.

How can I tell you?
I can't stay with you.

Neither I can give up on you.
Fear of losing you is losing me.
It feels like slow death every night.

But we are just stuck in our spaces!
Unable to connect from two feet distance.

Woman In Tears

But who washed her in pains
That her tears, soil to drain
When innocent mind blots in grief
Affliction that is intransigent
The mystery that brought tears
To His hands she await in fears
But as sun kisses her naked eyes
Drained her pains, heavenly friend
As the drip passes fluids to her hole
To her daughter she smiles
Agonies of her absence in loneliness
The nakedness of the truth, she will know
That today is the time since awaited
And the kiss of the sun again
From the glass pane of the window
The gentleness of its touch
That, of course, is the heaven dew
Eyes now brownish, date given now due
In gentleness, she closes her eyes
In tears, her daughter knows she’s gone

Another Broken Family

They had to tear down the building
They were cookin up the meth
They had to relocated the children
What a damn shame that it is.

They had to take the adults
down to the county jail
they had to take all the children
To a cps kind of hell

Another broken family
Another broken life
Damn I hate this broken world
I wish we could do right

They had a bad deal go wrong
a bad drug deal four people gone
hear the shots come through the walls
and blood everywhere down the halls

they had a drug overdose in the complex
too much herion and too much meth
too many thugs rollin drugs for sale
and it leads to so many deaths

The Black Abyss

Sinking in deeper,
No way to escape,
The dark and scary Reaper,
Fore told in the Book of Life.

Is this my end?
Will I ever see the light of day again?
No. My wounds, I must mend.
I must find my strength.

Stand my ground,
Face my fears.
Only then will my voice be found
I must survive.

Break the suffocating chains,
Run from the darkness.
Power will fill my veins.
I will Fight!

Fight the painful names,
The horrid memories,
The demented games 
And escape My Black Abyss.

Spinal taps
Bone marrows
Saving lives
Parents crying
Children dying
Clinging to life
On a hope
Wishful thinking
Prolonged results
Death is eminent
Praying in pause
Attached to machines
To stay alive
Battling for time
Gasping for breath
Inhaling oxygen
Keeping you stable
With positive thinking
To ease the pain
Only for so long
Until it strikes back again
Fighting to survive
Through another day
Never giving up
To the last moment
Exhausting all possibilities
Before letting go
Of a sad fate
Illness in remission
Or way to late

Go To Hell

 I don't believe in hell, it seems
Unfeasible and frankly odd
A myth of old medieval dreams
And bad publicity for God
Unfair to fickle lovers, fools
And sorry sinners most contrite
Too heavy on the fossil fuels
Too scary for the kids at night
But Ian Brady died today
Who caused so many lights to dim
And suddenly, I have to say
I hope there is a hell for him

He couldn't win for losing
He couldn't take anymore
Life was not amusing
It was only a chore

His mind was a mess
He only felt pain
Dull at it's best
He was going insane

He reached into his drawer and took out his gun
With no hesitation held it to his head
He pulled the trigger and it was done
You wonder what you could have said

No Rabbit For Me Please

I had a little bunny
honey was her name

She was so cute and funny
till I clubbed her in the brain

So sad I had to eat her
but I'm really not to blame

Was the doings of my daddy
and his sickly little games

I had to hang my bunny
in the killing tree

She kicked and screamed so madly
till my mind went free

I cut her throat and peeled her
but I wasn't really there

That's the story of my bunny
my lifeless skinless little hare

Have you ever heard a rabbit scream? 

It sounds just like me

main hu ek aajad pakshi ki trah
udti hu khule aasman me
jise n koi chinta, kisi ke shikar karne ki
udati rahu puri jindagi, aajad pakshi ki trah
koi n rakhe mujhe bandhi bna kar 
udati rahu, udati rahu, aajad pakshi ki trah
khane ke liye bhatku idhar -udhar
n mile mujhe khane ke liye
bhukhe pet hi so jau
kitne bhi kasht mile, has kar sah lu unhe
koi phark n pade, ab kisi kasht ka
aadat hi ho gayi ab hume
main hu ek aajad pakshi ki trah
udati hu khule aasman me

Till death do us part

You close your eyes
While roughly breathing with sighs
You Touch the forehead 
While tears moist your plead

Your day is ending 
As pain you are enduring

Uncontrolled pain
We are descendants of Cain
Tomorrow will also pass in vain

I cannot touch you
But I want to hold you
I can give you no help
But remind you of our only hope

Irritation and distress
You deserve to express
Anger and disappointment
I accept as my commitment
I respect you from my heart
Till death do us part

Black Beauty

She's sewn back together
completely up tight
emotions trapped inside her
deep and out of sight

She put a pad lock on 
and threw away the key
her feelings are all gone
can't you see

She's so full of fear
expectations are running high
such a poor little dear
so afraid she might die

The nice guy

Sometimes it sucks being the nice guy
the girl you love isn't interested
just friends says she
just friends the next
pain is all I feel
to cover it agitates the wound
it's exhausting
I drive, as far as possible
return still slightly insane
haunted, f*cking go away
I want to cry, but they're looking my way
so my struggled smile here and their
walk away in tears
living in fear
