Torment

 

He didn’t want any prying eyes

Didn’t want some well intention soul

seeing the pain and anger that was bubbling just under the surface

Didn’t  want anyone asking questions

or offering comfort

Yes he was tormented

but the pain was his alone

So, he bowed his head to hide his face

and walked on

Digging

Though time

and time again

I have tried

Sorrow remains

as ever

by my side

I want to bury regrets,

Shame and memories too

I need to get rid of every last trace

of you

 

So I’m digging

deep holes

here,

in the back yard

Even though this soil

is proving to be quite hard

I will persevere,

I will follow through

I’ll dig straight on to hell if I have to

Not complaining

It’s a small room

Simple

No frills

But I’m not complaining none

Got a roof over my head

A locked door

And a single bed

No pillow and one thin blanket

But when you’ve slept on the floor

or on the ground

It is a big step up

So I’m not complaining none

There is one small window

It has bars to keep me in

Don’t know why anyone thinks I’d run

I can still see the sun

And clouds

and sometimes a bird or two

I’m not complaining none

They bring me food

Three times a day

It isn’t fancy

But I’m not hungry now

So I’m not complaining none

They call me a basket case

I been called worse

Way worse

I’m not complaining none

want

head down

crying

at the why

chanting

screaming

moaning

black drunk

on the when

still

singing

the

sordid

symphony

of want.

Rose

rose

fiddled with her petals

like a little girl in a frilly dress

dew drops glistening as jewels

as she swayed to the whispers of the wind

and waited for the sun
