So unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish my next anthology, Blue Autumn, by the end of February. I am getting really close to being done though. Currently finishing up stuff for the cover and getting down to the last poems I need to workshop. In the mean time I thought I’d share one more poem that will be featured in it. It’s rather cynical so be forewarned.
Love is harsh because it fools you
into thinking that people want you.
It leaves all your passions crushed
and all your ardor desires rushed.
Love is hard because it hurts you.
It abandons and deserts you.
It makes you think that you are sacred
but instead fills you with hatred.
Love is sharp because it cuts you.
It mutilates and corrupts you.
It makes all hope seem stale and bitter
then scars your mind with pain and blisters.
Love is tough because it drains you.
It makes each aching fault enchain you.
It breaks your spirit down with stones
and then bleeds you hollow to your bones.
Still slowly working on finishing up more poems for my next anthology, “Blue Autumn”. In the mean time enjoy this small sample.
The shadows rave and blink at me
And the lights phase into a galaxy
I trace and dissolve into a Greenwich ember
Even though I forget the shadows remember
Hey everybody. It'll be a good bit before I release my next anthology, but I thought I'd post one the poems that is going to be featured in it. The next anthology will be entitled "Blue Autumn" by the way. In the mean time enjoy.
The fascism of Christianity
The dictatorship of greed
The theocracy of atheism
The anarchy of need
The heathen paints a wooden cross
The gentile pukes a Jewish prayer
The only exit is south from heaven
But who said life was ever fair?
Enslaved to doubt
Enslaved to fear
Enslaved to weaknesses of the flesh
Enslaved to lust
Enslaved to guilt
Enslaved to sin and eternal death
Devoid of human faith
Cause you will bend and you will break
You will fall and you will drown
The only way up is down
